What are the legal requirements?

The legislation covering England and Wales is the Hazardous Waste Regulations 2005, SI 2005 No.894, whilst in Scotland it’s the Special Waste Regulations 1996, SI 1996 No972.

Are there many forms to fill in?

Just a declaration of what you’ve put in the box. Each Haz Stop Haz Box comes with a declaration form with a checklist of hazardous material types. Simply check off and record the amount of each type of waste and we’ll do the rest.
