Guidance on the Waste Incineration Directive

Date published: 06 December 2011


This guidance describes the scope, regulatory and technical requirements of the Waste Incineration Directive (WID) and how they should be interpreted and applied.

It explains the main legal provisions, but the precise legal requirements can only be determined by the Courts.

The guide is particularly intended for operators of incineration and co-incineration plants, the Chief Inspector, waste producers, statutory consultees and waste mangers, all of whom are affected by the WID.
