In our first part of the podcast this month, Chris and Mark discuss the European Court of Justice judgment in Openbaar Ministerie v Tronex BV C-624/17, which deals with questions about the meaning of waste, particularly consumer electrical products and when a consignment of such products can be waste.
The ruling appears to require regulators to look at the consignment in issue and come to a conclusion about the different types of product contained therein - finding that appliances which have not been ascertained to be in good working order or which are not in their packaging are waste, while those products in their packaging and in good working order are not waste.
