You can copy an existing waste record if you’re organising a collection of the same waste type for disposal in the same way.

Step one: Log in

Log in to the EPA portal.

Step two: Open the Manage waste menu

In the 'manage waste' menu, choose the 'waste producer transport' records.

Step three: Waste producer dashboard

In the 'waste producer' dashboard, you’ll see a list of your waste records.

Step four: Find waste record you want to clone

To clone a record, find the record that the clone will be based on.

Enter the waste record number in the search bar and click the magnifying glass.

You can also sort by clicking any of the column headings or using the filters. How to filter waste records describes these filters in more detail.

Step five: Choose clone record

Click the arrow on the right of the record to select 'clone record'.

Note: you cannot clone a 'draft record'.

Step six: Choose the number of clones to create

Select the number of clones you wish to create. You can clone up to 50 records at once.

Once all clones are complete a confirmation message will appear. This may take a few minutes.

Once cloning is complete, you can choose to clone the waste record again or return to the dashboard.

Step seven: Find the cloned record

To find the cloned record, go to the Waste producer transport records. You can filter for cloned records and order them based on creation date.  

Step eight: Edit the record

Click the arrow on the right of the record and choose Edit record. You can edit all details when the record is in draft.

Review all the information in the cloned waste record including:

  • waste amount
  • waste code
  • the nominated transporter and receiver.

Make any necessary changes. If the waste code or classification has changed the nominated transporter and receiver will need to be reselected.

Click 'save' and next to move through the screens.

Step nine: Review and confirm
