How to complete your HAZARDOUS WASTE RESPONSE FORM

Guidance to help you complete Form HWRP.

Section A applies if the waste is generated from a non-healthcare activity.

By ticking this section you are confirming all the waste Cannon Hygiene collects is from a non-healthcare activity & therefore non-hazardous. Consignment Notes, Premises Registration AND Exemption doesn’t apply, proceed directly to the Customer Declaration, Step 4

(Note: as waste is non hazardous, FORM NHWRP NON HAZARDOUS WASTE FORM is then also required)

Please Note Cytotoxic/static Medicines & Dental Waste (fixer/developer and amalgam waste) are always considered to be a healthcare waste and therefore hazardous. If you have either of these services you must indicate them in section B and then proceed to Step 3.

Section B applies if the waste is generated from a healthcare activity, please note cytotoxic/static medicines & dental waste (fixer/developer and amalgam waste) are always considered to be healthcare waste and always hazardous.

The charge for each hazardous collection is £10, invoiced monthly in arrears.
