Registered waste exemptions are beginning to expire. Use the new Environment Agency online service to re-register them if you want to continue any related waste operations.
Waste exemption registration lasts three years. The earliest you can re-register is one month before they expire. You will receive a reminder letter from the Environment Agency stating the date they will expire. If you are unsure which exemptions you have registered and when they expire visit the waste exemption public register to find out.
