What is a Waste Transfer Note?

Duty of Care Waste Transfer Note (WTN) is a mandatory UK form that tracks your business waste from creation to disposal. It details the waste, who handles it, and where it goes, ensuring legal compliance and protecting the environment from illegal dumping.

These are legally kept on file and accessible for at least 2 years.

While paperwork may be digitised, the core details captured by WTNs are still vital for compliance, thus they are typically produced as carbonless NCR (No Carbon Required) forms, with multiple copies for each party involved in the waste transfer.

The WTN notes must comply with the legal requirements set out in the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and the Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2011, including specific information that must be included on the form. Different variants of these exist for Scotland and Northern Ireland, post Windsor Agreement.

If you, or your company carries out a waste operation - of any kind - that changes the nature or composition of the waste, you are regarded as a producer of the waste.

Waste Producers play a key role under UK Duty of Care requirements, as they are in the best position to identify the nature and characteristics of their waste.
