The Environment Agency has published a new Regulatory Position Statement (RPS) relating to waste collection points.

The RPS 224 is about collecting non-hazardous waste produced at different sites within a single identifiable premise. Collecting waste means gathering waste. It includes storing waste and treating it so that it can be transported to an authorised waste management facility.

The individual sites within the premises must be owned or operated by (or on behalf of) a single owner or occupier. For example, separate:

  • retail units in a shopping mall, retail park, market, hospital or motorway service station
  • tenanted units within a multi-tenant office block
  • tenanted businesses within multiple educational campuses, such as a college or university
