Can I see your waste carriers licence please Mr Landlord?Make Text Bigger
Did you know that if you carry waste in the course of your business (property letting) for profit, then you are likely to require a Waste Carriers License?
If you use contractors, they must have one.
Do you think that it may not apply?
Well, guidance states that it includes all these items:
Examples of construction and demolition wastes would include:
- any items that had been part of, or had been, an infrastructure
If these related to your own home, you’d be exempt.
Okay, so now you’re aware, let’s pretend you’ve not read this and everything will be okay!
Well, you can get fined up to £50k or face a 5 year jail term for not having one!
Okay – still not convinced?
Here’s a plumber who was fined for taking a radiator away from a house – LINK HERE
Read this story about somebody being pulled up for putting a bacon butty wrapper in a bin (no joke!) – LINK HERE

The cost is currently £154
