2. Using a trader to remove household waste

Your responsibilities

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.
