The new electronic Duty of Care (EDOC) system for waste transfer notes went online this week as the Environment Agency seeks to transform the way movements of waste are recorded and managed.


The paper-based system, used to date, is estimated to generate over 23 million waste transfer notes a year.  The new electronic system aims to reduce this paperwork and make it easier for businesses to comply with their Duty of Care.

The free and voluntary EDOC system was developed by the Environment Agency and other waste industry bodies including the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM).  It enables parties to create, sign, share and store WTNs (single and season tickets) as well as create reports from their waste data via a secure log in.

Tony Windsor, Managing Director, Windsor Integrated Services Group says: “We welcome this initiative to help reduce waste and make compliance easier for all our clients.”.

It is expected that the EDOC system will be broadly adopted by recycling waste management over the next few years.
