are continuing to keep capacity provision for hazardous waste under close review.
According to Andy Howarth, head of hazardous waste policy at DEFRA: The message we are getting from producers is that their waste has a treatment or disposal route. Our job is to ensure that the sites are permitted in time and that the requirements are communicated clearly to stakeholders. The agency will be making sure that the rules are enforced.
Senior DEFRA officials have previously stated that landfill capacity would not be a problem when co-disposal ends in July, but that treatment capacity could be lacking.
