The Waste Agency of Catalonia (the name was changed from the Waste Board after the publication of Law 15/2003 on 13 June) is an entity under public law that is responsible for both the waste that is generated and the waste that is managed in Catalonia. Its responsibilities do not extend to: radioactive waste; waste from prospecting, extracting, processing and storing mineral resources and from quarrying; waste from agricultural and livestock farms that is not hazardous and is used exclusively within the farm; declassified explosives; wastewater; and gas emissions to the atmosphere.
