Category: Briefing Notes

Date: 12 February 2021

This document is intended for those who operate transfer stations, to understand how the Environment Agency would deal with a request to accept used Lateral Flow Device (LFD) and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) waste generated by community COVID-19 mass-testing, which would otherwise be in breach of their environmental permit. It may also assist those with waste management responsibilities at testing sites.
