Having a Spring clean at home?

Don't end up in court.

By law, it is the householder who is responsible for making sure their waste is disposed of safely and legally. When fly tipping occurs, it is often carried out by illegal waste carriers who promise to take your waste away for a bargain fee but then dump it. If the waste is dumped illegally, the waste could be traced back to you rather the person who dumped it and you would be held responsible. If you are looking to start on a household project, consider what waste you may generate and how you will dispose of it once the job is done.

Before hiring any individual or company take down the individual or company details and check with the Environment Agency that they are a registered waste carrier.
