Note: MPA Cement Fact Sheet 11, ‘The classification and characterisation of cement where discarded as waste’, has been withdrawn. Subsequent Environment Agency advice concludes that because the cement product is classified as an irritant when handled and in use, that when discarded, cement should therefore be classified as hazardous waste for the purposes of disposal. This is contrary to an expert opinion sought by MPA Cement (formerly BCA), however users should adopt a precautionary approach and follow the Environment Agency's recommendations.
