The onus is on the waste producer, i.e. the printer or photographic central processing unit, to identify the waste created and evaluate whether it should be considered Exceptional or Controlled Waste. Controlled Waste is any commercial or industrial waste including non-hazardous waste. Special Waste is any Controlled Waste which is regarded as hazardous under the “Special Waste Regulations 1996”. Regulations are complex requiring every product to be identified by different chemical components within the waste; the risk and concentration of each and every part has to be evaluated against prescribed thresholds.
Certain waste flows are still being reviewed by the Environment Agency to find out whether they may, in fact, be regarded as “Special”. If in any doubt it’s crucial that you consult the chemical supplier, Environment Agency, or your waste management company for clarification. It is additionally vital that you notice that generally, due to changes which take place during processing and dilution, printing and photographic waste is subject to change prior to disposal, thus, the information supplied on the Manufacturers Health & Safety Data Sheet applies to the consigning of the waste material.
