A Householder's care of Duty
What happens when someone else takes my waste and rubbish away?
As you are a householder or business owner you are legally bound to take all reasonable measures to make sure that all your waste and rubbish is disposed of in a responsible way and environmentally friendly way.
Regulations that are in force require all residential householders to ensure their waste products are only removed from their premises companies that are proper registered waste carriers.
This includes anybody that is a private waste collector who holds a waste carrier’s licence that has been issued by the UK Governments Environment Agency
Why is it that I should have any obligation that ensures the waste carrier disposes I employ handles my waste correctly?
The duty and care of waste is an important factor to suppress rogue waste crimes. These unlicensed rogue waste carriers are more likely to offer cheap prices for their waste clearing services, usually a lot lower than a legitimate business who act responsibly and morally towards environmental and recycling issues.
These Unlicensed rogue carriers are much more likely to illegally dump, or 'fly-tip', your waste that they collect, this will be to avoid the cost for proper disposal. This in turn adds to environmental damages and pollution to our countryside and urban areas. This illegal fly-tipping and dumping of waste has to be removed by your local council which raises people's council tax, and also private landowners who bear the brunt of this by paying for it to be removed themselves.
But what if these rogue traders dump my rubbish illegally, then surely it’s their fault and nothing to do with me?
If the original waste products originally came from your house and they've found to be fly-tipped, you will be asked to provide evidence and details of the people or person that you gave it to, so the authorities can take the matter up with those people directly. If you failed to not check the person's credentials that you released your waste to and they were without a proper licence to accept it, and you have no way of providing this relevant information when required, then you could basically be prosecuted and take the risk of a substantial £5,000 fine and even receive a criminal record also.
Do I require a waste carrier’s licence to move my own waste products to the tip and recycling centres?
No you don’t. Any householder can take their excess waste and dispose of it themselves at the local Household Recycling Centres absolutely with no costs involved. If you find that some of the items are too large to be transported in your car then you could try contacting your local council services and for a nominal fee they will arrange a collection or your unused items such as furniture, fridges, washing machines or wardrobes.
How can I be assured that my household waste is not being disposed of incorrectly by a these rogue dishonest waste carriers?
Before you arrange the collection by anyone of the waste from your home, then please carry out these simple checks:
You should always ask a few questions as it’s your duty to help stop the prevention of unlawful fly-tipping by these unscrupulous rogue trader.
