Licences for a Waste Removal Company

To be able to operate as a waste removal company there are certain rules and laws that a company must adhere to and they must have the right documents in place to prove that they are legal.

If you are considering hiring a company to take any waste from your home or business premises, then you should be careful who you employ. You will be responsible if you hire someone that will fly tip your waste or misuse it in some way.

The company in question must be approved by the EA (Environment Agency) and be registered as a licenced waste carrier.

Not only is a legal requirement to have certain accreditations, but by having these in place, it will also build trust with the company’s customers. Clients will know that the firm that they are dealing with is legal, legitimate and the staff will be fully trained.

Things to look out for on a website is accreditations from CHAS which is the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme and the Alcumus Safe Contractor Scheme. If a website displays these, then you know that you will be in good hands.

Another thing to look out for is to see if staff are vetted before they are employed. If so, then no employee will have a criminal record which is important as they will be in and around your property.

Any waste that needs to be disposed of will be done in an ethical way that is environmentally friendly and taken to a registered recycling plant. We work with several in London and only use trusted established businesses that use environmentally friendly methods.
