Don't let third parties fly tip your waste!

Everyone has a legal 'duty of care' to ensure your household or business waste is disposed of correctly.  If it's your waste, it's YOUR responsibility.

Always use a registered waste carrier to collect your rubbish.

You can Find a registered waste carrier in your area on the Environment Agency's website.

  • Suspect all waste carriers. Don't let them take your rubbish until they provide proof of registration. Note their vehicle's registration plate.
  • Check that a waste carrier is registered on the Environment Agency's website.
  • Refuse any unexpected offers to have your rubbish taken away.
  • Ask how your rubbish will be disposed of - seek evidence of this.
  • Paperwork must be obtained: a proper invoice, waste transfer note or receipt, including a description of the waste being removed and the waste carrier’s contact details.
