A Duty of Care Waste Transfer Note (WTN) is a document that must be completed when waste is transferred from one party to another. If a Duty of Care Waste Transfer Note is not completed during the transfer of waste you are almost certainly breaking the law and could face a fine. A Duty of Care Waste Transfer Note ensures there is a clear paper trail from when the waste is produced until it is disposed of. You must keep your waste transfer notes and hazardous waste consignment notes for at least two years and be able to produce them on demand to the Environment Agency or local authority.
