All companies that regularly transport their own wastes must now register as a waste carrier.
From 1 January 2014, a new swathe of businesses has been caught under the Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2011.
These rules came into force three years ago, but included temporary exemptions for companies transporting their own waste before 29 March 2011.
From 1 January 2014, all businesses that “normally and regularly” transport their own waste must register with the Environment Agency or Natural Resources Wales as a registered carrier. They can do so online.
