Abstract

These Regulations amend the Landfill (England and Wales) Regulations 2002 for the purpose of implementing Council Decision 2003/33/EC establishing criteria and procedures for the acceptance of waste at landfills pursuant to Article 16 of and Annex II to Directive 1999/31/EC. They also make provision in respect of the implementation of the Landfill Directive. The transitional provisions for existing landfills in the 2002 Regulations are amended so as to impose additional conditions in the landfill permits or waste management licences of existing landfills prohibiting the acceptance of certain types of waste at those landfills from specified dates. The main amendments to the Landfill (England and Wales) (Amendment) Regulations 2004 concern the setting of criteria for the acceptance of monolithic waste at landfills to provide the same level of environmental protection given by those set for granular waste. They re-enact, with amendments, the waste acceptance criteria to be met by granular waste and set new waste acceptance criteria for monolithic waste, both in respect of stable non-reactive waste and non-hazardous waste deposited in the same cell with such waste (reg. 13) and waste acceptable at landfills for hazardous waste (reg. 14). Regulations 15 and 16 make provision for the sampling and testing of those wastes, while regulation 12 makes a consequential amendment. The Regulations also amend the Landfill (England and Wales) (Amendment) Regulations 2004 to set the limit value for waste acceptable at landfills for inert waste in respect of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (regs. 10 and 11) and to correct a drafting error (reg. 9).
