Waste Carriers Invited to Participate in Consultation Seminars

DEFRA STAKEHOLDER WORKSHOP SEMINARS ON THE WASTE CARRIERS/STOP, SEARCH AND SEIZURE CONSULTATION

Defra launched a second consultation on 13 June 08 on Controls on the Handling Transfer and Transport of Waste.

The consultation closes on 8 September 2008. A small number of seminars are being held in August and September aimed at local authorities, the business community and those that carry and broker waste.

The aim of the seminars will be to discuss the consultation in more detail, for Defra to understand the impact that particular proposals may have on local authorities and the waste industry, and for attendees to suggest other ways in which the regimes could be improved.

The seminars for waste carriers and brokers and businesses that have an interest in waste issues will take place on three dates and there will be no charge for attending.

The first will be on Monday 1 September 08 in Manchester at the:- Lancashire County Cricket Club Ltd Old Trafford Manchester, M16 0PX.

The second date will be on Monday 8 September 08 in London at the:- Defra Rm 808 Nobel House, 17 Smith Square, London, SW1P 3JR.

The third date will be on Tuesday 9 September 08 from 2.00pm – 4.30pm in Wales at the:- Welsh Assembly Government Cathays Park Cardiff CF10 3NQ

This is an opportunity to help shape future government policy as the review is still at its early stage.

If you would like to attend a seminar, please email:

flytipping@defra.gsi.gov.uk stating your name, company details and whether you are specifically a waste carrier and/or broker or are involved in a business that has an interest in the issues in the consultation. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. There will be space for around 30-40 attendees on each seminar.

The Waster particularly likes this email address: We want to find flytippers – so who is “flytipping at Defra”!
