As we enter a new year, it’s important to create new resolutions, but even more important to ensure waste responsibility is covered! Therefore, it’s time to fill out and return a new Annual Waste Transfer Note "AWTN" to cover waste collected by your commercial recycling provider between 1st January 2019 – 31st December 2019.
Understanding that many of our customers are going paperless, CS Recycling have created an interactive form for each individual company to fill out, which is sent out to our subscribed customer list at the beginning of each year to ensure all our customers have their duty of care covered. We have had many of our customers ask us the question, "why do we need to do this?" Here is the answer...
Why do businesses need to complete waste transfer notes?
All businesses that produce, handle or reprocess waste, and then subsequently move this waste off of their site are required by duty of care laws to have documents relating to where this waste is going.
Further to this, ISO 9001 certified customers may be asked to supply an AWTN documents to their auditors.
What information needs to be contained within a waste transfer note?
- Current holder/producer of waste details
- Description of activity
- Receiver/collector of waste details (including waste carriers licence number)
- Description of waste
- Transfer details
To further cover our customers, each collection ticket completed by us and signed by the customer also acts as a waste transfer note in itself.
