Receiving and Treating Contaminated Waste
The NSW Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) introduced Waste Tracking to help eradicate illegal dumping of environmentally hazardous waste, prevent waste going to the wrong facility and stop unfair competition.
It is the responsibility of the waste producer/generator to classify the waste type prior to transportation (see EPA Waste Codes and descriptions below). All possible contaminants must be identified, which may require having laboratory test analysis performed. Brandster Services is happy to guide and assist you in this process, please contact us online or speak to one of our friendly team on 02 9623 1177.
Brandster Services will only accept waste requiring tracking at its receiving facility if a pre-approved Consignment Authorisation document has been issued and it is accompanied by a Transport Certificate (TC) for completion upon receipt and processing of your waste.
