Do you transport waste generated by your own business activities? You will now need to register as a waste carrier (lower tier).
From January 2014, you have to register as a waste carrier if you regularly transport waste as part of your business. You can be fined up to £5,000 if you don’t register.You can register as a waste carrier using our new and simple tool available on GOV.UK.
Register as a Waste Carrier
Registering costs nothing and lasts indefinitely if you’re just transporting your own organisation’s waste. You will not have to renew your registration unless your situation changes, but you must update your details within 28 days if the information you’ve provided in your registration changes.
You’ll usually need to pay a fee of £154 if you’re dealing with other people’s waste.
