Construction waste under review

News in brief

Proposed changes to regulations for dealing with construction, demolition and excavation waste have been published for consultation.

Defra, the Welsh Assembly Government and the Environment Agency launched the informal consultation on rules for the recovery and disposal of inert waste such as brick, concrete and subsoil on Wednesday.

The proposals cover topics such as testing inert wastes that are landfilled, the quality of guidance, and terminology used to describe the waste.

Responses have to be returned by March 21. The paper can be found at
