Where to check out your waste carrier credentials

When you have your commercial or industrial waste removed are you sure that the waste carrier is registered and your responsibilities ?


The Waste (England and Wales) Regulations makes reference that waste streams should be removed by registered waste carriers and the waste taken to suitably licenced waste recycling / disposal sites.

The hierarchy of waste should be considered , implemented and recorded on the waste transfer note, the hierarchy being :

(a) prevention; (b) preparing for re-use; (c) recycling; (d) other recovery (for example energy recovery); (e) disposal.

From 1 January 2015, waste collection authorities must collect waste paper, metal, plastic and glass separately. It also imposes a duty on waste collection authorities, from that date, when making arrangements for the collection of such waste, to ensure that those arrangements are by way of separate collection.
