Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response

Waste carriers and brokers


If you transport waste or arrange to have it transported as part of your business, you must register with us, even if you only deal with it once in a while.

If you don’t, you could face a fine of up to £5,000.

If you transport the waste yourself you must register as a waste carrier.

If you arrange to have it carried you must register as a waste broker.

If you'll be transporting waste between Scotland, England and Wales, you only need to register with one Agency.

For transport to and from Northern Ireland, you need to register with us and also register with the Northern Ireland Environment Agency.

To register

You’ll need:

  • a credit or debit card; and
  • the names of all partners (if you're applying as a partnership)

Registration required






**NOTE: This service is only for customers wanting to register as a waste carrier or broker for the first time - for renewals you should use our alternative service**
