Waste Operator Permit / EWC Code tie up

Hi, hope all’s well

 

We are currently building a system for a client where the end goal is for a user to enter a waste operator’s permit number which will then load a page that shows the details of the waste operator and importantly – which EWC codes that waste operator can accept/handle.

 

Using the APIs we can obviously look up all the waste operator permits in the UK (similar to the environment agencies website), and we have a separate list of EWC codes (similar to wastesupport.co.uk) but there doesn’t appear to be any way of accessing data that links the 2 – so we can tie them up. Are you able to provide us with any data sets that have both the permit number and what EWC codes that permit covers?

 

TIA
Paul

Hi Paul,

Thank you for your question, unfortunately we do not have a dataset with this information and some older sites don’t have EWC codes in their permits.

Hi Ella, thank you for the quick reply - really appreciate it

Are there any additional data sets available that can act as a juncture point, for us to tie up on ourside.  For example a 3rd dataset that has the Waste Management Licence No. / site postcode / EWC codes on

Or are the EWC codes a completely separate stand alone entity?

Kind regards
Paul
