Specific activities
(Waste Management Licence Exemption 15)

There are very few activities that can fall under exemption 15. You cannot use this exemption for any activities involving;

  • the spreading of waste or
  • use of waste in construction

There are already specific exemptions designed for those purposes, which are Exemptions 7A, 8A (sewage sludge), 9A, 19A and 25.

For example you cannot use Paragraph 15 to use tyres to construct the foundations of a road because tyres have been purposely left out of the list of wastes suitable for construction under Exemption 19A.
