Beware of rogue waste collectors

Beware of rogue waste collectors

If you arrange for someone to remove rubbish from your property they must be registered with the Environment Agency as a Waste Carrier.

It is illegal for someone to collect and transport waste if they don’t hold a waste carriers licence.

You can check to see if an individual or company is licensed on the Environment Agency Register of Waste Carriers.

Unlicensed waste carriers may be more likely to fly tip rubbish. If your waste is found in a fly tip you could be fined up to £5000.
