Waste carriers and brokers

beta

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.
