Waste stream(s) permitted
Any waste which can be put to use without further treatment

This paragraph does not apply to the use or storage of waste if that activity is covered by an exemption conferred by paragraph 9, 10, 11, 19 or 25, or would be so covered but for any condition or limitation to which that exemption is subject by virtue of any provision contained in the paragraph by which that exemption is conferred.
