Environment Agency Waste Hierarchy

Section 34 of the Environmental Protection Agency (1990) and the associated Environmental Protection (Duty of Care) Regulations 1991, impose a 'Duty of Care' on all companies who import, produce, carry, keep, treat or dispose of controlled waste.

Ultimately, this means that any entity producing waste must give priority to preparing it for re-use, followed by recycling, then another recovery (such as energy recovery), and last of all disposal.

Hospital departments are responsible for ensuring that they comply with these regulations. By working with CellSolv®, hospitals can be reassured that they are partnering with an environmentally responsible company, who make waste disposal a simple and worry-free process.
