The piece of legislation that is responsible for enforcing and regulating the production of hazardous waste, its type of management and disposal methods is known as The Hazardous Waste (England and Wales)Regulations 2005. According to The Hazardous Waste (England and Wales)Regulations 2005 part 1 of the legislation it states in article 4 of the waste directive is that the waste must be disposed of in a way that doesn’t harm human health or resorting to ways which would degrade the environment such as the surrounding surface such as soil, the natural flora in the area and the local fauna of the surrounding environment.
Furthermore within the Hazardous Waste (England and Wales)Regulations 2005 part 2 it defines waste as hazardous waste if it is “listed as a hazardous waste in the List of Wastes” the Hazardous Waste (England and Wales)Regulations 2005.
