Short description: EXTRACT: Use this technical guidance when you plan to apply to surrender your permit for a permanent deposit of waste. This will be when you have fulfilled your closure and aftercare requirements and the site is unlikely to pose a risk to the environment or human health. The type of information that you will need to provide with your surrender application will reflect the risk to the environment and human health posed by the activity. ‘Low risk’ sites will be able to rely on evidence that the waste that was accepted will have no impact on the environment or human health. The guidance includes criteria to be applied at ‘higher risk’ sites where the wastes accepted are likely to have required more pollution control measures to be in place. For these sites more evidence will be necessary. Verification of the types of waste received at the site is essential to understanding the risk posed by the site.
