waste transport

Waste transport without a problem? It is possible

The transport of waste is strictly regulated by a number of European regulations. These regulations are intended to ensure that waste is transported professionally and without harm to the environment. However, what are the consequences of disregarding them and not having the appropriate permits?

Why are waste transport permits so important?

Waste transport legislation in the European Union is designed to minimise the risks associated with inadequate waste management. Key pieces of legislation in this area include. Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 14 June 2006 on waste shipments. These were introduced to control waste shipments within as well as outside the EU. These regulations require any company involved in waste transport to have the appropriate permits. This will ensure that waste is transported, treated and disposed of in an environmentally safe manner.

Illegal transport of waste

German disorder

For several years now, between Poland and Germany there is a dispute over illegal waste transport. The issue became notorious when an investigation by the environment ministry found more than 35,000 tonnes of waste lying around in several localities. These included: Tuplice, Stary Jawor, Sobolew, Gliwice, Sarbia, Bzowo and Babin. The waste was found there as a result of illegal transport. The authorities in both countries worked together to resolve the problem. This eventually led to tighter controls and sanctions against offending companies. There are many indications that the problem - at least partially - will be solved. According to recent media reports, the Saxony authorities have pledged to export nearly 20,000 tonnes of wastewhich is deposited in the village of Tuplice.

More than one million euros for illegal exports from England

Recent history from the islands shows that regardless of the amount of waste, its illegal transport will be punished with the utmost severity. This was found out by a company in Manchester, which illegally exported almost 250 tonnes of waste to Poland. However, this was not the result of an oversight (e.g. someone forgot the permit). It was a deliberate act, because waste that should have been exported under the notification procedure arrived in Poland with documents suggesting that the waste belonged to the Green List. The company was fined £870,000, which translates to over €1 million.
