The carriage of waste is primarily controlled by a system of documentation (either paper or online) that is designed to accompany the load. It is illegal for any transport operator who is not registered with the Environment Agency, Natural Resources Wales or the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA), to handle or move controlled waste. Additional safeguards apply to hazardous waste consignments.
