Further changes to waste licensing exemptions in Scotland

The Scottish Executive has made further changes to the way waste sites are regulated under "exemptions" from the full-blown waste site licensing regime. The new regulations1 will bring Scotland more closely into line with the regulations shortly to be introduced in England and Wales. Controls on small composting sites are to be tightened, and a new exemption introduced for treating waste at sewage treatment works. There are also provisions for mobile plant licences for clinical waste treatment and land remediation.
