Environmental Legislation


Environmental Legislation

There are a number of environmental regulations in place in the UK which affect businesses. The purpose of these regulations are to:

  • Ensure that waste is recovered or disposed of without endangering human health or causing harm to the environment
  • Encourage the prevention or reduction of waste and the recovery of waste via reuse or recycling 

Some of the regulations that may affect you as a business include:

Failure to comply with these regulations can result in prosecution and fines so we would strongly advise businesses to carry out checks to see if they are affected.
