GREEN LIST OF WASTES (*)

Regardless of whether or not wastes are included on this list, they may not be moved as green wastes if they are contaminated by other materials to an extent which (a) increases the risks associated with the waste sufficiently to render it appropriate for inclusion in the amber or red lists, or (b) prevents the recovery of the waste in an environmentally sound manner.

ANNEX IV

RED LIST OF WASTES

"Containing" or "contained with", when used in this list, means that the substance referred to is present to an extent which (a) renders the waste hazardous, or (b) renders it not suitable for submission to a recovery operation.

(1)() Wherever possible, the code number of the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System, established by the Brussels Convention of 14 June 1983 under the auspices of the Customs Cooperation Council (Harmonized System) is listed opposite an entry. This code may apply to both wastes and products. This Regulation does not include items which are not wastes. Therefore, the code - used by customs officials in order to facilitate their procedures as well as by others - is only provided here to help in identifying wastes that are listed and subject to this Regulation. However, corresponding official Explanatory Notes as issued by the Customs Cooperation Council should be used as interpretative guidance to identify wastes covered by generic headings. The indicative "ex" identifies a specific item contained within a heading of the Harmonized System code.

The code in bold in the first column is the OECD code: it consists of two letters (one for the list: Green, Amber or Red and one for the category of waste: A, B, C . . .) followed by a number.

(2)() "Non-dispersible" does not include any wastes in the form of powder, sludge, dust or solid items containing encased hazardous waste liquids.

(3)() This entry covers the use of such slags as a source of titanium dioxide and vanadium.

(4)() These cannot be polymerized and are used as plasticizers.

(6)() This listing includes wastes in the form of ash, residue, slag, dross, skimming, scaling, dust, powder, sludge and cake, unless a material is expressly listed elsewhere.
