I am a “Waste Producer” what is an online hub that connects me with waste companies?
As a waste producer you can find and book licensed waste companies to deal with your waste. You then follow these waste companies. By following them you are kept up to date with their different documents like their insurances or any licenses. This gives you piece of mind that you are following your duty of care.
I am a “Waste Company” what is an online hub that connects me with waste producers?
As a licensed waste company, you claim your profile and showcase your business to waste producers. By uploading your licences, insurances and policies you can keep all your customers complaint. With our inbuilt notification system, you and your customers will receive notifications regarding the expiry dates of these licences, insurances and policies.
As a licensed waste company, you can benefit from all the different features the waste producer can too. You can follow your transfer sites, AD plants or EfW facilities.
Why do you keep saying “licensed waste company”?
Every person, business or charity that collect, transport, recover, dispose of, deal in or broker waste for profit needs to have a licence. Dsposal uses the Environment Agency’s Public Registers to populate our profile pages. Meaning that all companies on Dsposal are licensed by the Environment Agency. We like to keep saying “licensed waste company” because that who you should always be used to collect your waste.
What is the “Duty of Care”?
The Waste Duty of Care is a law about how to deal with waste so that we can protect human health and our environment. It applies to everybody that producers waste and almost every waste in England; even households. The waste producer has a responsibility to take all practical steps to make sure that their waste is properly looked after until it finishes its journey to disposal or recovery.
What happens if I don’t follow my “Duty of Care”?
If you fail in your waste duty of care by letting an illegal company collect your waste, then you could get a fine or even get sent to prison. Waste crimes like collecting waste without a licence, fly tipping or illegally burning waste are massive problems in England. To combat it the Environment Agency are cracking down with increased fines and prison sentences. Not just to the people that do the crime but also on the people, businesses and organisations that do not follow their duty of care.
