This guide explains how to create a waste record in Waste Tracker.
Before you create a waste record you need to have arranged transport and receipt of waste out of the system.
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 dashboard.
Step three: Waste producer transport dashboard
In the Waste producer transport dashboard click Create new waste record.
Step four: Create new waste record
Enter the mandatory information into the My details form.
Note that the Submitter field is auto-populated.
Click Save and next.
Step five: Complete Waste details
In the Waste detail screen, enter all details. Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory.
Select the waste code from the look up.
Read the Waste classification process if you need help to identify the waste code.
Note that the Waste form field is auto-populated but can be edited. Choose the appropriate form (liquid, solid, sludge, mixture).
Waste duty and Mirror code fields are auto-populated but can’t be edited.
Step six: Complete Intended treatment and package type details
Click the drop-down arrow next to Intended treatment option and select the appropriate waste treatment option.
For Package type (bulk) choose yes or no. If yes, enter the number of packages when prompted.
Step seven: Complete dangerous goods details

Step 10: Enter the waste origin
Click the drop-down arrow under Where is the waste coming from?
Choose the appropriate location from the list.
