Coulsdon Clients’ FAQs, Answered

What does it mean to be a “licenced waste carrier”?

Any sole trader or company that transports waste is legally required to register with the Environment Agency. This goes for both dedicated skip hire companies, and similar waste management providers, as well as any demolition company that disposes of waste they have themselves created. The registration allows said agency to keep a track of companies in Coulsdon, the UK and wider Europe, ensuring that if they are found to have breached regulation they are appropriately fined or similarly punished.

We’d urge prospective client sounding out other skip hire companies, or in fact demolition companies, to inquire about their registration to ensure everything is above board. Using an unregistered company could prove costly and even lead to legal culpability.

Do I need to inform anyone before a demolition takes place?

Yes. If the project we are taking on falls under the CDM Regulations Act (2007), then we will need to submit a F10 form with the HSE. Likewise, your local authority will need to be contacted for a Section 81 demolition notice. Just as with our skip hire services, we can handle this on the part of Coulsdon clients to simplify the process.
