2. Using a trader to remove household waste
Everyone has a duty of care for their waste and must check, the company they use has a carrier certificate by checking with the Environment Agency
We would always recommend you:
- take down (and keep safe) the registration number of the vehicle
- make sure any payment is recorded, such as using credit/debit cards or cheques
Paying in cash
Always try to pay via card. This will this help track fly-tippers and also provides security from your bank.
If your waste is fly-tipped and you haven't checked the carrier's credentials, you could be fined up to £5,000.
