Frequently Asked Questions
How can we help you?
Our Compliance Dashboard is your go to place to manage all your waste compliance, contracts and data. It’s been built for organisations with complex waste management needs, like NHS Trusts, manufacturers, science parks, universities, facilities management companies, waste brokers and anyone responsible for multiple waste streams, contractors or sites. It delivers a real-time view of the compliance status of your waste contractors and any onward disposal sites or subcontractors, with automated notifications to keep you informed of important compliance dates, like expired documents, so you know that you’re compliant.
Contract management tools keep all your waste contracts in one place, with a performance log, customisable notifications and a record of the key parties and dates so you can ensure you’re getting the best from your suppliers. Upload or import all your waste collection documents (e.g. waste transfer notes, hazardous waste consignment notes, destruction certificates etc), capture the important data, log issues and set alerts to ensure you’re not missing any. Your data is beautifully structured so you can easily create powerful reports on your waste, compliance and contracts to reduce costs, minimise risks and improve your environmental performance.
The Compliance Dashboard is an online platform offered on an annual or monthly subscription basis, with flexibility to choose the tools that you need and a free tier for those managing their company profile. You can access it from any device that has a connection to the internet.

The UK governments have committed to implementing and mandating a digital system to record waste movements and the Environment Act 2021 provides them with the powers to do so. Defra ran a consultation on the introduction of mandatory digital waste tracking which closed in April 2022. Though the new system will not require every single type of waste transaction to be recorded digitally, it does cover the vast majority of waste movements and so its implementation will affect you, especially if you are a waste management company as all your records will have to be kept and submitted digitally. The new system will replace all the current, fragmented systems and reporting requirements (e.g. quarterly returns, WasteDataFlow, hazardous waste returns) and bring them under one service. The system is still under development and you can join their User Research Panel.
Dsposal was one of the 5 companies involved in Phase I of Defra’s GovTech Catalyst Smart Waste Tracking Challenge and while we weren’t one of the two companies involved in Phase II, we have taken all our experience and findings from Phase I and built Paperwork with the express goal of making the transition to digital waste tracking easy for our customers. So, if you’re worried about what it means for your business or you want to find out more about how Paperwork can help, contact us or book a demo.

The Waste Duty of Care is a law under section 34 of the Environment Protection Act 1990 that covers how to deal with waste so that we can protect human health and our environment. It applies to everybody that producers waste and all waste in England; even householders and their waste. The waste producer has a responsibility to take all practical steps to make sure that their waste is properly looked after until it finishes its journey to disposal or recovery. That means it’s not enough to just check the company that takes the waste away from your premises is licensed – you also need to check where they are taking it on to and ensure the whole chain is licensed. If you fail in your waste duty of care by letting an illegal company collect your waste, then you could get a fine or even a prison sentence.
Dsposal is an ambassador of the Right Waste Right Place campaign and you can find more useful information for SMEs there.
