Our standard Hazardous Waste Consignment Notes (HWCN) are printed as loose three part sets - i.e. they are not bound in to a book like the 2 part and 3 part waste transfer notes. They are supplied in packs of 25 sets. These hazardous waste consignment notes will cover most situations.
The notes contain spaces to enter address details, and information on Low codes, chemical/biological components, physical form of material, hazard codes UN identification numbers, UN class, shipping name, handling requirements and declarations for the producer, carrier and receiver of the waste. See sample form. There is no numbering of the notes to allow for your own numbering system or to compliment your accounts system. A rubber stamp pad containing the company name and address is useful for quickly filling in your address details.
Each set of HWCN measures 297mm high x 210mm wide and contains three sheets one each of white, yellow and blue.
Whilst these hazardous waste consignment notes will suit more than 90% of situations they do not cover all possibilities. If you are unsure if our HWCN fulfill your requirements please telephone 01922 475768 or 07891 470268 and we will advise you if these notes are suitable for your needs.
