Did you know that both the owner of the waste and the transporter are legally responsible for proving the waste was transported to a lawful place? The owner of the waste and the transporter are each guilty of an offence when waste is transported to a place that cannot lawfully be used as a waste facility.

“if it sounds too good to be true it generally is” and if the price of disposal and/or recycling is significantly lower than their competitors their is a big chance that they are not adhering to the POEO act and EPA and DECC regulations.

The maximum penalty for supplying false or misleading information about waste is $250,000.
