Every company or individual that carries waste for a living must have a Waste Carriers Licence, and these are issued by the government. Whenever you require the services of a waste management company to remove any quantity of waste, you must ensure that the person/company you employ are legally compliant to remove, carry and dispose of your waste. You can check if someone has a waste carriers licence by visiting the government’s waste carrier register here.

Because of fly-tipping/illegal disposal of waste, it means that our fleet of grab lorries are often employed to do weekly waste collections of fly-tipped waste for local authorities around the County. This is commonly where a van has dumped waste along a quiet road, country lane or playing field. This is not only illegal, but puts an extra strain on the resources of the local authorities to arrange the clear up.

Need a skip?

If the price you’ve been quoted for by a man and van on Facebook sounds too cheap to be true, check they have a waste carriers licence as they may just fly-tip your waste. If you choose a company that is not licenced to carry waste, and disposes of it illegally - you’ll face prosecution if the waste can be traced back to you. This could be up-to £5000 and the fly-tipper could receive a fine of up to £50,000, up to five years in prison, or both.
