Why is it important to ensure the removal service I employ has a waste carriers licence?
This is a question that some people query when they are looking to disposal of unwanted items such as furniture, sheds, stairlifts, or a vast amount of house and garden waste.
The main factor why it is substantially important you ensure the company has a waste carriers lincense is knowing they dispose of the items in a correct and enviromental manner.
In England alone, in 2017, over a million cases of fly-tipping occured and cost the UK around 50 million pounds, to remove the items which have been wrongly dumped. Around 2,000 cases of fly-tipping ended up in prosecution, although this doesn't seem a substantial amount, it does relate to you. It costs, on average, £10 per person to help fund the misconduct which occurs - £10 which is wasted money, all due to the fly-tippers negligence and unlawful act.
