Green listed waste

ANNEX III

LIST OF WASTES SUBJECT TO THE GENERAL INFORMATION REQUIREMENTS LAID DOWN IN ARTICLE 18

(‘GREEN’ LISTED WASTE) (1)

Regardless of whether or not wastes are included on this list, they may not be subject to the general information requirements laid down in Article 18 if they are contaminated by other materials to an extent which

(a) increases the risks associated with the wastes sufficiently to render them appropriate for submission to the procedure of prior written notification and consent, when taking into account the hazardous characteristics listed in Annex III to Directive 91/689/EEC; or

(b) prevents the recovery of the wastes in an environmentally sound manner.

Part I

The following wastes will be subject to the general information requirements laid down in Article 18:

Wastes listed in Annex IX to the Basel Convention (2).

For the purposes of this Regulation:

(a) any reference to list A in Annex IX to the Basel Convention shall be understood as a reference to Annex IV to this

Regulation;

(b) in Basel  entry B1020, the term ‘bulk finished form’ includes all metallic non-dispersible (3) forms of the scrap listed therein.

(c) the part of Basel  entry B1100 that refers to ‘Slags from copper processing’ etc., does not apply and (OECD) entry

GB040 in Part II applies instead;

(d) Basel  entry B1110 does not apply and (OECD) entries GC010 and GC020 in Part II apply instead.

(e) Basel  entry B2050 does not apply and (OECD) entry GG040 in Part II applies instead;

(f) the reference in Basel  entry B3010 to fluorinated polymer wastes shall be deemed to include polymers and copolymers of fluorinated ethylene (PTFE).

(2) Note that even where low level contamination with Annex I materials initially exists, subsequent processes, including recycling processes,

may result in separated fractions containing significantly enhanced concentrations of those Annex I materials.

(3) The status of zinc ash is currently under review and there is a recommendation with United Nations Conference on Trade and

Development (UNCTAD) that zinc ashes should not be dangerous goods.

(4) This entry does not include scrap from electrical power generation.

(5) Re-use can include repair, refurbishment or upgrading, but not major reassembly.

(6) In some countries these materials destined for direct re-use are not considered wastes.
