Why Do Rubbish Collection Companies Need A License?

Why do rubbish collection companies need a license in London?

It is a legal requirement for rubbish removal companies to hold a license to be a waste carrier.

The requirement of the license falls under a legal document called Waste Duty of Care. It is the responsibility of the Rubbish Collection Company to have the correct code suited for their company. The code should be permitted for the types of waste that they are carrying.

Rubbish collection in London can be tricky to find a reliable company, one of which that has a licence to carry your waste, remember that if you use a company that do not, there is a possibility that they could fly tip, exposing your letters and personal information.

So, it’s always important to check with the Rubbish Collection Company that they have legal rights to carry your waste. The care of waste is important in all aspects including the positive impact it holds on the environment.

Our company has a full licence to carry and remove waste for all of our customers in and around London.
