While Circol ELT does not have a direct enforcement role, we work with all agencies involved in overseeing the Regulations and support them on a daily basis in challenging non-compliance.

Local Authorities (LAs) are responsible for enforcing the Retailer obligations.

LA Waste Enforcement Officers (WEOs) visit members and non-members to ensure compliance.

The three Waste Enforcement Regional Lead Authorities (WERLAs) help support the LAs in their work:

  • Connacht-Ulster WERLA
  • Eastern-Midlands WERLA
  • Southern WERLA
