The Environment Agency (EA) have published a guidance document on how operators with a mobile plant landspreading permit and deployment can meet requirements of using mobile plant for landspreading waste to provide agricultural benefit or ecological improvement.

The general guidance is that:

Spreading waste to land must:

  • be controlled by an environmental permit, regulatory position statement, low risk waste position or waste exemption
  • result in agricultural benefit or ecological improvement
  • be waste recovery, not waste disposal

Activities must not:

  • endanger human health
  • harm the environment by causing risk to groundwater, surface water, air, soil, plants or animals
  • cause nuisance through noise or odours
  • adversely affect the countryside or places of special interest
