Advice if you're paying someone to take rubbish away
Protect yourself from rogue waste collectors and traders by following the following steps:
1. Ask for their waste carrier registration number.
2. Check the number online with the Environment Agency or call them on 03708 506506.
3. Keep a note of all the information you receive from the waste collector or tradespeople.
If they're not registered don't use them.
Inform Trading Standards of the rogue trader immediately by calling 03454 04 05 06.
If you have any of your rubbish removed and it ends up being flytipped, you could be held responsible and fined. By following the simple steps above, you can protect yourself from this.
