Landfill Ban 2009

Due to the fact that Hydrogen Sulphide is produced when land-filled with other mixed waste residues, the Environment Agency have imposed a ban with the following statement:

“This position statement was published in 2009 to explain a change in our approach to regulating gypsum wastes.

Previously the Environment Agency had not imposed a complete ban on gypsum being deposited in landfill cells that accept biodegradable waste. This position confirmed that a complete ban would be imposed from 1 April 2009, reflecting the requirements of the Landfill Directive (1999/31/EC).”
