*Suspect all waste carriers. Don’t let them take your rubbish until they provide proof of registration. Note their vehicle’s registration plate.

*Check that a waste carrier is registered on the Environment Agency’s website.

*Refuse any unexpected offers to have your rubbish taken away.

*Ask how your rubbish will be disposed of - seek evidence of this.

*Paperwork: a proper invoice, transfer note or receipt, description of the waste and waste carrier’s contact details.
