Fly-Tipped

SiteSolved recognises the impact fly tipped waste has on a business, a community or an individual and offers a fully compliant service to remove the waste from commercial businesses or for members of the public.

With over 1 million reported incidents of fly tipping in England following annual increases since 2013, it is estimated that nearly 66% (two thirds) can be attributed to household waste at a cost of over 15 million pounds.

Always check licences and credentials!

You must make sure anyone who collects waste has a Waste Carriers Licence and is registered on the Environment Agency’s Public Register. It is a criminal offence to use an unlicensed waste carrier – even if you weren’t aware.  It is your responsibility to check the licences held by the company you are entrusting with your waste.

For businesses, you must have a Waste Transfer Note, which you keep for a minimum of two years.  This is proof of your business address, the company and registration number of the waste carrier, type of waste, quantity of waste etc.  This must be signed by the business and by the waste carrier. Any reputable waste carrier that you choose to use should be able to provide you with their Waste Carriers Licence and will be happy to provide evidence that your waste was disposed of legally and ethically at a licensed facility.
