Household Waste Duty of Care
SEFTON Council is urging residents to remember their duty
of care when getting rid of household waste, in order to avoid huge flytipping
fines. Many residents hire third parties to take away household waste and large
bulky items from their home but most do not know the rules and regulations that
cover these types of waste disposal.
By law, individuals are required to make sure the firm removing their waste is
authorised to do so and is registered with the Environment Agency as an official
waste carrier. It is also vital to retain the name and address of the person or
firm disposing of your waste.
In 3 recent cases in South Sefton, residents have fallen foul of rogue waste
collectors who have simply dumped their waste as flytipping around the borough.
If flytipped waste is traced back to a particular property, the householder
could be fined up to ₤5,000 if they cannot properly identify who they used to
get rid of their waste.
Cllr Paulette Lappin, Sefton Council's Cabinet Member for Regulation and
Compliance, said:- "Recently we have experienced issues with members of
the public not complying with their legal responsibilities to ensure any waste
they produce is removed by a registered carrier.
This can be from the local paper, social media or shop noticeboard but the
responsibility is with the household to check they are legitimate 1st before
they employ them.
Too many residents are employing people to take waste away which is then being
flytipped in the borough.
Householders are required to make a simply check with the Environment Agency in
order to ascertain if the person that they are passing their waste to is a
registered waste carrier.
Ask to see their waste carrier license issued by the Environment Agency or
contact the Environment Agency directly on:- 08708 506 506 and ask for a free
instant Waste Carrier Validation Check.
Alternatively you can check online on the Environment Agency website.
Even after you've checked, keep their details so that if flytipping does occur,
you can show that you acted responsibly.
You can do this is many ways, such as asking for an official invoice or a form
with all of their details on.
If they are not prepared to give you their details, don't employ them."

THE SME National Business Awards are
delighted to announced that:- 'Railway
Children' will be their Charity Partner for
2017. The awards are closed for this year. More information about this can be
found online at:-

of money for this very worthy cause. Speaking on behalf of Railway Children, Dave
Ellis, Corporate Partnerships Manager commented:- "Railway Children is
incredibly proud to have been chosen as this year's Charity partner for the SME
National Business Awards. As a charity we have grown from helping 200 street
children in our first year to having supported 270,000 in the 22 years later
since in India, East Africa and here in the UK. With so many of our valuable
corporate partnerships being with SME's themselves, we are reminded on a daily
basis of just how much impact small and medium sized organisations really can
have upon not just the economy, but also upon the lives of children who would
otherwise be completely alone and vulnerable on the streets."
