Abstract

These Regulations provide for measures to prevent or reduce the adverse impacts of the generation and management of waste. They seek to reduce overall impacts of waste recycling and re-use and to improve the efficiency of use of waste. The Regulations amend the Waste Management Act, 1996, which implements a large part of Directive 2008/98/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on waste. These Regulations also implement in part that Directive. They concern, among other things, waste prevention, recycling and re-use, handling and labelling of hazardous waste, waste disposal, producer responsibility, public participation, ban on the mixing of hazardous waste and offences.
