Hi all, informal views welcome here. What are you doing following the change in law last year? It didn’t seem to be that well communicated and we heard it hasn’t made much difference for many garages as the heaters themselves are not banned. Experiences welcome, is it a subject worth reporting on or better to keep quiet about?
In case you didn’t see the article: The burning of waste oil in a small waste oil burner is not allowed without a permit from the local authority. This is a permit under Schedule 13 of the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016 which applies the provisions of Chapter IV of the EU Industrial Emissions Directive. These provisions have been in place since April 2016. Those burning waste oil without a permit could face prosecution by local authority regulators.
