Abstract

UK waste disposal has long relied on managed co-disposal of hazardous and nonhazardous waste to landfill. However the transposition of the EU’s Landfill Directive into UK domestic law stopped co-disposal as of 16th July 2004. From that time on, landfill sites had to be designated as taking either inert, non-hazardous or hazardous waste streams (although stable non-reactive hazardous waste, e.g. asbestos, could be consigned to a designated cell at a nonhazardous site). Additional controls imposed restrictions on some wastes going to landfill for final disposal and outright bans for others. Such a fundamental shift in UK landfill use policy led to fears of negative consequences. Fears included hazardous wastes being unlawfully consigned as non-hazardous and an increase of hazardous waste fly-tipping. This paper discusses the latter.
