Registration of Recyclers of Hazardous Waste

Print

As per the Hazardous & Other Waste (Management & Transboundary Movement) Rules, 2016, recyclers or reprocessors of hazardous wastes are no longer required to obtain separate registration.

All recyclers who have obtained Hazardous Waste Authorisation are given passbooks where all purchases of hazardous and other wastes made by the recyclers have to be entered and endorsed by the respective sellers (waste generators). The recycling capacity i.e. the type and quantity of the hazardous and other wastes that each recycler can recycle, are specified in their respective passbooks and the recyclers cannot purchase other waste types or higher quantities. The passbook becomes invalid on expiry of the Hazardous Waste Authorisation.
