Definition:

Disposal (waste)

This is where a waste is discarded and is not used for any purpose. If it is incinerated none of the heat or energy produced is used for another purpose such as production of electricity. If it is deposited in or on the ground it is not improving anything and may even be detrimental.

Types of disposal operations are listed in Part III of Schedule 4 of the Waste Management Licensing Regulations 1994 (as amended).
