WHAT ARE CLASSED AS WEEE ITEMS?
WEEE materials are categorised into 5 waste streams:
LDA (large domestic appliances) e.g. washing machines, cookers, tumble dryers, dishwashers etc.
Cooling appliances – e.g. Fridges and freezers
CRTs (cathode ray tubes) e.g. televisions and computer monitors
SDA (small domestic appliances) e.g. vacuums, toasters, kettles etc.
WHY DO I NEED A WASTE TRANSFER NOTE?
The Waste Transfer Note is a document that contains the details regarding the transfer of waste from the business/household to Cookham Waste & Recycling and must cover every load of waste that is transferred. This is to help us have a clear audit trail from where the waste originates until it is processed. It is also required that you keep your waste transfer notes for at least two years to avoid any fines in case they are requested by the Environment Agency or local authority.
