Fly Tipping could land you with a £400.00 bill !!
Don’t take the risk, by going for the cheap option……..
Make sure you ask to see one of these:
Certificate of Registration to carry waste.
House, garden and waste clearance companies that you’re thinking of using, are they registered and legal to carry YOUR waste? This responsibility lies with you, the original items owner!
Always check and ask to see their waste carriers license certificate before you agree a price and they take your waste away, as the household owner you are responsible and can be taken to court and fined (as well as the contractor).
If the price sounds cheap, then probably you could become a victim of your waste being fly tipped by an unlicensed contractor.
It’s already illegal to allow an unauthorised person to remove domestic waste, always check the Environment Agency online register to learn whether the person taking away your household rubbish is registered to do so. Clearthelot.com is a trading name and is owned by Brookrose Ltd (Waste Carrier ref CBDU41883) .

See this article by the BBC in January this year about fly tipping (2018) :
As a trader, your nominated contractor you chose to take your waste away will be charged at your local waste transfer station. The rules are different for households going to your local amenity tip yourself, so don’t be confused or conned into think they will off load for free as you do on a Sunday for small garage clear out.
