Register or renew as a waste carrier, broker or dealer 


Fines up to £5000 If you don't register for the correct waste carrier licence.


You must register if your business does any of the following:


  • transports waste (a carrier)
  • buys, sells or disposes of waste (a dealer)
  • arranges for someone else to buy, sell or dispose of waste (a broker)


|There is a different process for registering as a waste carrier in Northern Ireland, and Scotland 

Before you start


Please note a waste carrier licence will normally cost £42 (lower tier) if the waste your transporting has been generated by you as a business. This does not include building construction or demolition waste or waste you are transporting from somebody else. If these are activities you're carrying out then you will require an upper tier waste carrier licence which costs £254 for 3 years. As long as this licence is then renewed before it expires you'll be able to renew it for £164 for another 3 years. The upper tier waste carrier licence will allow you to transport any type of waste. If you are unsure about the type of licence you need please contact us on the number above and one of our advisors will be happy to help. Please be aware that our call centres are running at limited capacity due to covid. Therefore to avoid long hold  times and to help our staff please try and apply online by clicking the START button above.  


The following waste types are examples of waste you can NOT transport with a lower tier licence.


Boilers, radiators, old bathroom tubs sinks, rubble, concrete, soil, decking, garden sheds, fencing, windows, doors and roofing materials etc. (please note this list is not liited to these waste types)


After you register 

You will receive an email confirming the payment  you have made and then within a few minutes you will receive a second  email which will have your waste carrier licence attached as a PDF document. Your business details will then appear on the public register within 48hrs. This will allow your customers to see that you have a valid licence giving them confidence in the service you provide.
