Disposal of waste in the ground, notification

The holder of a property must notify the Environment and Building Control Department in writing about the disposal of waste other than garden waste and composted food or lavatory waste in the ground, unless the disposal requires an environmental permit or another statutory notification because of the amount of waste. The notification must be made at least 30 days before the disposal of the waste. The notification must be appended with any analysis results describing the environmental acceptability of the waste, a map drawing of the disposal site and an account of how the waste is to be placed in the ground. A person planning the disposal of waste in the ground should be in contact with the Environment and Building Control Department well before starting the operation.
