Waste proofing procedure

Disposal, i.e. recovery or disposal, including the collection and transport of hazardous waste, is subject to a waste detection procedure. This is required by waste producers and owners, carriers, collectors and waste disposal companies on the basis of the Act on the Promotion of the Circular Economy and Ensuring the Environmentally Sound Management of Waste (KrWG). Excluded are households and small volume producers who produce no more than two tonnes of hazardous waste per year.

On the basis of the Evidence Ordinance, which regulates the waste-related detection procedure, electronic detection and register management is mandatory for all interested parties. In individual cases, the competent authority may issue an exemption in whole or in part.
