Waste Carrier Licence

Grounds Maintenance Waste Carrier Licence

Grounds maintenance waste carrier licence, does your gardener or grounds maintenance contractor have a waste carrier licence? They should do! If you use a professional, genuine grounds maintenance company they should be listed on the environment agency register. Before deciding on a grounds maintenance company you can check this register at: https://environment.data.gov.uk/public-register/view/index.

Why is it Important?

If any business:

  • transports waste
  • buy sell or dispose of waste
  • arranges for someone else to buy, or transport waste

They need a waste carrier licence by law or face up to a £5,000 fine! If your gardener or grounds maintenance company removes green waste and litter they should be registered by law. If a grounds maintenance contractor is fined, it could put them out of business meaning their clients will be left out in the lurch.
