Carbon waste

Does anyone know if carbon media is classed as "special waste" and can't just be sent to landfill?

I have one company saying yes and the other saying no!?

Hi Ian

I think you'll find this link and document very useful:

https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/427077/LIT_10121.pdf

From a brief read through it appears that activated carbon from water treatment processes is classified as Absolute Non-hazardous AN - see code 19 09 04 page 73 (A37).

Cheers

Roger.
Kind regards

Roger
