Right Waste Right Place – are you compliant?
A campaign to raise business awareness of Duty of Care and the financial and environmental cost of waste crime has been launched this month (June).
The Right Waste, Right Place campaign is primarily aimed at SMEs to raise awareness of the Duty of Care legislation and provide practical information to help companies, partnerships, family businesses and sole traders from a broad range of sectors to comply and help keep waste out of the hands of waste criminals.
Duty of Care compliance is a serious issue. Recent evidence shows that 56% of UK businesses are not complying with the law 94% of non-compliant businesses are SMEs. The lack of compliance has contributed to the substantial and growing problem of waste crime.
