Re: Waste carriers license

What waste are you carrying? AFAIK, there is an exemption for green garden/tree surgery waste until 2013.

Re: Waste carriers license

I was looking into this the other day and from what i gathered you dont need one at present for carrying green waste although you will soon but it is free anyway. If you are doing landscaping and carrying rubble for instance you do need one now.

Re: Waste carriers license

Up here we apply to SEPA, so presume its Environment Agency down south. One license per business, you can request as many ID cards (credit card size) as you like, for 5 each I think, then keep one in each vehicle. Don't think you have to carry the ID cards though if its only green waste, but not totally sure, might be different in England anyway.

Re: Waste carriers license

One in each vehicle is good practice though when checked recently at the tip one of our trucks had no ticket but they were able to check- all OK
Probably just saves time if you are checked regularly.
