Teignbridge Fly Tipping Campaign

Check who you pay to take your rubbish away

Did you know that you are legally responsible for the waste you are getting rid? This means that if it ends up getting dumped you could face a fine and a criminal record.

Don’t become a victim of this type of crime.  Before you pay someone to take your old fridge, furniture or bulky items away, follow our simple checklist

Simple steps

1.    Check if they have a waste carriers licence. You can do this by checking on their website, asking to see their waste carriers licence and by calling the Environment Agency on 03708 506 506 for a free instant waste carrier check.

2.    Make a record. Take a note or photograph of the registration number of the vehicle that is being used to take your waste away and ask where it will end up

3.    Get a receipt. Ensure that you get a transfer notice or receipt before your waste is taken away

 

Remember that most unwanted bulky household items can be taken to your nearest recycling centre for free. Alternatively Teignbridge Council provide a free rural skip service and offer a charged bulky waste collection service.
