Legal duty of care
The Waste Regulations 2005 make householders legally responsible for ensuring their household rubbish is only passed on to an authorised person for disposal. The legislation is designed to help reduce the amount of dumped rubbish or fly tipping.
Householders have a duty of care and must take all reasonable measures to make sure household waste produced on their property is disposed of without endangering health or harming the environment.
This applies to any type of waste that is unsuitable for disposal in your dustbin and unable to be taken as part of the weekly household waste collections.
If illegally disposed of waste is traced to your household, you may be fined up to £5,000 in a Magistrates Court. So it is not just the contractor that is at risk of a fine. Employ a contractor with no license and you run the risk of being prosecuted.
