‘Right Waste, Right Place’ Duty Of Care Awareness Campaign

The ‘Right Waste, Right Place’ campaign aims to inform small to medium sized businesses about the law and of their obligations to comply with the waste duty of care regulations. Research suggests that 56% of UK businesses are not complying with the regulations and 94% of non compliant businesses are small to medium size enterprises.

The campaign is managed by the Environmental Services Association (ESA) and sponsored by a range of organisations including the Environment Agency (EA) and the Central Institute for Waste Management (CIWM).

An interactive website has been developed as a part of the campaign, the ‘Right Waste, Right Place’ website offers practical advice with meeting your ‘Duty of Care‘ obligations under Section 34 of the Environment Protection Act 1990 in easy to understand format.
