EWC codes | List Of Waste | European Waste Codes

When waste is moved or disposed of you must use a waste transfer note/consignment note. This describes the waste, producer of the waste and the disposal point. A standard coding system classifies and describes the type of waste. These are called EWC Codes (European Waste Codes) as specified in the List Of Waste Regulations.

Pure Planet Recycling have created the following searchable list of EWC codes, categorised by Chapter and sub chapter. The list includes the July 2015 amendments.

Pure Planet Recycling do not offer support on the use of these codes. We can not be held responsible for their improper use. If you need help please visit the waste classification guidance.
