Questions on appropriate measures for permitted facilities that take non-hazardous or inert waste

We welcome your views on our proposed guidance on the appropriate measures for permitted facilities that take non-hazardous or inert waste for treatment or transfer. If you are unable to send us your views using the online tools, please use this form and send it to us by email or post.

Where there is a free text field, please give as much information as possible to support your answer, including cost/benefit information whenever possible. For example, if meeting a requirement of the guidance would be costly to your business, provide an estimate of the work that would be required at your facility (or facilities), and the likely costs and timescale.

If you already meet the requirements of the guidance, please state this and set out any costs and benefits associated with doing so. This will help us to assess the cost-benefit of this guidance and whether and how we should modify its requirements

 

How we will use your information

 

A summary of responses to this consultation will be published on www.gov.uk/environment-agency. An annex to the consultation summary will list all organisations that responded but will not include personal names, addresses or other contact details.

The Environment Agency will look to publish the content of your response to this consultation to make it available to the public excluding your personal name and private contact details, for example your home or email address.

If you would like anything in your response to be kept confidential, you are asked to state clearly what information you would like to be kept as confidential and explain your reasons for confidentiality. The reason for this is that information in responses to this consultation may be subject to release to the public or other parties in accordance with access to information law (these are primarily the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIRs), the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA)). We have obligations, mainly under the EIRs, FOIA and DPA, to disclose information to particular recipients or to the public in certain circumstances. In view of this, your explanation of your reasons for requesting confidentiality for all or part of your response would help us balance these obligations for disclosure against any obligation of confidentiality. If we receive a request for the information that you have provided in your response to this consultation, we will take full account of your reasons for requesting confidentiality of your response, but we cannot guarantee that confidentiality can be maintained in all circumstances.

If you don’t request your response to be kept confidential, we will be able to release the content of your response to the public, but we won’t make any of your personal details publicly available.

The Environment Agency is the data controller for the personal data you provide. For further information on how we deal with your personal data please see our Personal Information Charter on gov.uk (https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/environment-agency/about/personal-information-charter) or contact our Data Protection team. Address: Data Protection team, Environment Agency, Horizon House, Deanery Road, Bristol, BS1 5AH. Email: dataprotection@environment-agency.gov.uk
