Cannabis Farm Waste Legislation

As more and more countries are legalising marijuana for medical use, there is a new waste challenge to deal with. Large amounts of organic compound are left as waste from this farming practice.

Cannabis derived waste is categorised as specialized waste, which means the transportation and disposal requires licensing and compliance.

In some states/countries, failure to meet cannabis waste disposal requirements can lead to fines up to $15,000 and/or cancellation of license.

What is cannabis waste?

Cannabis waste can typically be categorised as:

*Any plant waste processed with solvents is classed as hazardous waste and therefore must therefore be disposed of through a licensed landfill, or better yet, through incineration.

The growing of medicinal cannabis results in large amounts of waste and plant matter as a result of large scale production. Most countries require this waste to be ground up and mixed prior to destruction.
