Waste is to be classified into three broad categories: hazardous, non-hazardous and inert, dependent on the composition of the waste and its potential effects o on human health and the environment. 1) Inert Waste Material that when disposed does not undergo any significant physical, chemical or biological transformation; does not adversely affect other matter with which it comes into contact in a way likely to give rise to environmental pollution or harm to human health; and does not endanger the quality of any surface water or groundwater; examples are glass, brick and concrete. 2) Non hazardous Waste Material that is neither inert nor classed as hazardous and does not fall within the hazardous waste classification; examples are timber and paper. 3) Hazardous Waste Material with properties that may make it harmful to human health or the environment; for example, gauges containing mercury. The methods used to classify the wastes likely to be generated during decommissioning are in accordance with pertinent UK legislation.
