Avoiding Rogue Traders – 3rd December 2019

Rubbish removal has unfortunately been overrun with rogue traders who see it as a quick way to make money without paying the costs associated with doing it legitimately. Numerous news reports have highlighted the increasing issue of fly-tipping and as the consumer it is your responsibility to ensure that the company you use are appropriately licensed & insured.

The best way to check this is to ask to see their waste carrier licence which is provided by the Environment Agency. Anyone carrying waste on behalf of another party is required to hold an upper tier licence and legitimate companies will display their licence number on request. You can “quick check” us on the Environment Agency’s official website by entering our registration No.CBDU231690 https://environment.data.gov.uk/public-register/view/search-waste-carriers-brokers

Make sure any company you use has public liability insurance, should any accidental damage occur, you will be able to make a claim. At skipmate.com we have 5 million pounds of cover.
