Fines for non-licensed waste carriers, are you registered?

Enforcement officers from the Environment Agency are cracking down on people who aren’t authorised to carry waste. Under the Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2011, anyone who carries waste must be registered as a licensed waste carrier.

People who often get caught out include tradesmen such as builders, plumbers, joiners taking waste materials from a job back to their premises to be disposed of into a skip.

Some examples of wastes from construction / demolition works include:

Why would you hire a skip?

Hiring a skip is going to cost you more than you might think….

If you’ve got a job to do that will generate a lot of waste, you might think that you need to hire a skip, after all that’s what most people would do without a second thought, but how do you know how much waste you’ll need to get rid of?

Most skip hire companies charge by the size of the skip, offering a fixed price for a few different sizes such as mini, midi or maxi – but will your waste fit in one of these sizes of skips? Unfortunately, if you guess wrongly, the skip hire company will charge you extra to take it away.
