Sources of household, industrial and commercial waste

2.—(1) Table 1 describes waste which is to be treated as household waste, industrial waste or commercial waste because of the place where it is produced.

(2) The second column of Table 1 describes the places at which waste is produced.

(3) For the purposes of Part 2 of the 1997 Order the waste must be treated as the type of waste specified in the third column, subject to any exception in the fourth column.

(4) But in a case where paragraph 3 or 4(3) requires waste to be treated inconsistently with sub-paragraph (3), the requirements of those paragraphs take precedence.
