Furniture and white goods reuse and recycling

Checking that the person you pay is licensed to remove your waste

If you arrange for someone to take your unwanted items away, make sure that they are a 'licensed waste carrier' and check their licence.

If an unlicensed person takes your item away and it isn't properly disposed of, or it gets fly tipped, you will be jointly liable if there's a future prosecution or enforcement action. If the person who offers to take your furniture or white good away is just a 'man with a van.’ you may find yourself facing prosecution.
