Pre-Treatment 'Landfill Regulations (2002)'

As from October 30th 2007, non-hazardous waste must be pre-treated before it is landfilled. This can be achieved by collecting the waste streams separately and recycling one or more of the components, with the remaining waste being sent to landfill. A declaration must be given to landfill operators/ waste management companies, confirming pre-treatment has taken place, in the form of recycling.
