Householders' Duty of Care
Important! Householders now have a legal responsibility to make sure that only registered Waste Carriers collect their waste. Search the Environment Agency public register of those with a Waste Carriers Licence. Anyone offering a waste collection service such as odd jobbers, gardeners, or builders needs a waste carriers licence, so if anyone takes waste away for you always remember to:
- ask to see their waste carriers licence and make note of the number
- ask for a company headed receipt
- note down telephone number and vehicle registration
If your waste carrier does not have the correct licence, and then disposes of your waste illegally (fly tipping), you as the householder will be held responsible and may be liable to prosecution and could be fined up to £5,000.
