Waste Removal Sheffield

Some good info here if you need to waste collecting but also bear in mind the Councils Bulk Waste Collection which is also good value if you can leave it on your drive or front of your garden


Anyone that produces waste must take responsibility for its safe and appropriate disposal. You must be certain that your waste is removed and disposed of within the parameters of the law and by a registered contractor who is licenced to collect it. Failure to do so is an offence and could be costly.


The following blog will discuss the importance of hiring a registered waste carrier, and offer some advice as to how to go about it – or more importantly how to avoid employing cowboys to remove your waste.


This will give you the peace of mind that your waste is disposed of safely and responsibly by the right people with adequate resources and keep you on the right side of the law.


WHY USE A REGISTERED WASTE CARRIER


Your waste carrier must be registered in order to prevent fly-tipping – a huge and all too common problem here in the UK, that costs the taxpayer tens of millions of pounds every year.

If an unauthorised contractor removes your waste, it could be disposed of illegally. If this happens and the waste is traced back to you or your property, you’re likely to be fined £5,000 and potentially prosecuted.


Before allowing a contractor to remove and dispose of your waste, you should ask to see their Waste Carriers Licence. Legitimate, authorised waste carriers will be registered, therefore, they’ll have a certificate (valid for three years) to prove it.


To check if a company holds a Waste Carriers Licence, visit the Environment Agency website.
