Before mechanical treatment of the waste materials begins, the operator sends the following information to the authority to which the notification was submitted, and to the competent supervisory authority:


the start date and duration of the period during which waste materials will be mechanically treated;


the distance from the establishment to the specific construction and demolition yard or the specific roadworks;


the identification details of the rubble crusher, as established in the context of the Geographical Information System (GIS);


a copy of the certificate of the rubble crusher that will be used, issued by a recognised inspection body in the context of the VLAREA;


a description of the source strength (LW) of the rubble crusher in dB(A);


the distance from the rubble crusher to the nearest house and establishment requiring silence.


The register that the operator maintains in application of waste regulations also contains the following information:


at all times: the estimated quantity and the nature of stored waste materials awaiting treatment;


at all times: the estimated quantity and the nature of the stored recycled aggregates;


the times (days and times) at which waste materials are mechanically treated.


Inert waste and non-tar-containing asphalt are stored and treated on a level hard surface, without the need to fit an impervious hard surface. The waste and recycled aggregates are stacked in a safe manner, with no risk to the environment.


The operator takes the necessary measures so that waste materials that cannot be usefully applied within the construction and demolition yard or the roadworks of which the establishment is part are removed regularly.


The establishment has a calibrated weighing installation with automatic registration.


During delivery and removal periods and during mechanical treatment, a responsible person with sufficient competence and knowledge of the conditions to be observed and the measures to be taken is present at all times. The operator informs the supervisory authority of the name of this person in writing.


The operator takes all necessary measures to prevent and limit dust nuisance.

If necessary, a sprinkler system or spray truck is used to keep the waste and recycled aggregates being stored ready for crushing, as well as the dust-sensitive areas of the site, damp, both during the storage phase and during crushing.

When transporting construction and demolition waste and waste from roadworks to the establishment and when removing recycled aggregates, the necessary precautions, such as covering or spraying, are taken to counter losses of load and the spreading of dust.


The machines are set up in such a way that vibrations are not emitted into the environment.


The rubble crusher is fitted with a web-based information system linked to a GPS system. The information system is operational whenever the rubble crusher is being used.

The web-based information system specified in subparagraph 1 enables the certification body and the supervisor to visualise the location of the production installation, monitor operations and review the production period. This information is recorded and listed in a central database available on-line for the certification body and the supervisor.


Within thirty days of the end of activities and within a period of one year's operation specified in Article, 1, the site is completely cleaned.
