What Is A Licenced Waste Carrier?

When it comes to demolition site clearance, you’ll need to ensure that the company you hire is registered to handle the waste accordingly. At Ammanford Recycling, we are a licenced waste carrier with the Environment Agency. So, what does this mean and why is it important? Read on to find out more.

What Is The Licence?

To be a waste carrier in the UK, you must obtain a licence from the authorities. A business that deals with rubbish needs permission to transport, buy, sell or dispose of waste. There are tiers to this licence which specify what you can and can’t do as a holder. You can search the public register to ensure that the people you hire have the correct authorisation to do the job they are set out to do.

The Importance Of A Licenced Waste Carrier

It’s always important to hire licenced waste carriers during a demolition site clearance to ensure that your waste is disposed of correctly. Some materials may need to be recycled, in which case you’ll want to make sure these are taken care of. The aim is to send as little to landfill as possible.

A business that doesn’t have the correct licencing is handling waste unlawfully. If you produce rubbish, it is down to you to ensure that it is disposed of responsibly. If you put this waste into the hands of someone who isn’t a licenced waste carrier, you could be facing fines if your rubbish ends up being tracked back to you.

Fly Tipping

Fly tipping is a problem in many areas. Not only is it unsightly, but it is also a danger to the environment. The waste could be polluting the ground and air around it, as well as possibly putting wildlife in danger. By hiring a licenced waste carrier, you can be confident that your waste is handled correctly and responsibly.

Demolition Site Clearance Waste

When a site is demolished, clearing the waste must be completed by a licenced individual. At Ammanford Recycling, our highly skilled team and fleet of haulage vehicles can transport a vast range of materials back to our site for sorting. We will recycle everything we can when the demolition has been completed.
