Currently, small amounts of spoil (≤10m3 which is approximately 13 tonnes*) from unplanned installation and repair works can be disposed of as non-hazardous waste under the RPS211 regulation. On 31st October 2020, RPS211 will be withdrawn. After this date, companies will be required to classify all of their waste which will mean if they do not have the ability to classify the waste on site, they will be forced to transport and dispose of all waste as hazardous.
