Admissibility/conformity for landfill
Waste is accepted into landfill, only if it fulfils the admissibility criteria of the relevant landfill class.
In light of the fact that hazardous waste landfill sites are subject to more stringent environmental protection than non-hazardous waste landfill sites, which in turn must comply with more stringent environmental protection standards than inert waste disposal sites, waste that meets the criteria of any class of landfill may be disposed of at any landfill site that is subject to a higher level of environmental protection.
If the waste is judged to be admissible then sampling must be carried out to verify conformity.
If the results of the analyses carried out on the sample confirm the admissibility of the waste for landfill, then collections can start or continue.
