Additional precautions
(Waste Management Licence Exemption 17)

When storing some types of waste listed here you may need to take extra precautions to prevent pollution occurring. You may need to store liquid wastes in a bunded (secondary containment) tank that can catch any spillages particularly from leaking valves or accidental spillage when loading and unloading. You may need to consider where the storage is sited for example you should ensure that there were not any drains in a storage area where a polluting substance was being stored.
