The delivery, acceptance and sorting of the dangerous household waste is permitted only under supervision of the operator or his/her authorised representative. The operator or the above-mentioned representative has a sufficient command of chemistry and has sufficient knowledge of the characteristics and dangers of the chemicals that may be accepted and of the relevant safety regulations. The operator has to inform the supervisor of his/her authorised representative's name in writing.
By way of derogation from the general conditions for waste processing establishments, no weighbridge is required and in the register only information regarding removed waste materials is recorded, as well as information on any difficulties or malfunctions experienced, observations, measurements and other information about the establishment's operation.
The collected waste materials are separated and stored immediately or at the latest by the end of the day's work by the operator or his/her authorised representative in such a way that any risk is avoided.
The dangerous household waste is separated and sorted according to the chemical composition, nature or characteristics of the different waste materials. The containers or recipients are clearly labelled with the nature of the individual waste materials and the relevant danger pictograms.
The dangerous household waste is stored in an impervious compartmentalised container ("secure space for dangerous household waste") or in a closed storage area, in accordance with the approved work plan.
If it is found that a receptacle containing dangerous household waste is leaking, the receptacle or its contents are transferred to another suitable receptacle immediately and any spilled liquid is cleared. To this end, sufficient spare receptacles and absorbing material are kept available at the establishment. Empty polluted recipients and polluted absorbing material are removed with the dangerous household waste.
