Find a SIC code for your duty of care waste transfer note
Lancaster City Council is a licensed waste carrier and in order to comply with the Environmental Protection (Duty of Care) Regulations Act 1990, a waste transfer note must be completed annually and retained on file for all our customers. It is a legal requirement to keep a copy of your completed waste transfer note for two years.
Under the Waste Regulations 2011, waste transfer notes require the SIC code of the transferor, that is, the business that is transferring the waste to another business. Please record your SIC code in section D of your duty of care waste transfer note.
