Household and Garden Rubbish Clearance Planning Permission?

Household and Garden Rubbish Clearance Planning Permission?

Postby stacey0768 » Fri May 25, 2007 5:17 pm

Hello,

Does anyone know if you need planning permission,
to run a household and garden rubbish clearance business from you home?

I know you would need a licence to be able to dispose of the waste,
as you wouldn't be able to take business waste to a local tidy tip.

Also do you know if there is an online UK site where you can search to see,
if someone does have a licence to dispose of business waste just incase they are flytipping the rubbish.

Thank You

It would probably come under the heading, Waste Transfer Station, which needs a licence.

Any waste you carry, you would need a Carriers Licence for.

It would be a change of use from residential to business, so yes Planning Permission would be needed (I think).

It's a grand idea and I wish you luck, but I think you'll find the process fraught with difficulties and regulations.

"They", are always saying we should be reducing the amount of rubbish going to landfill and yet "They" are making it harder for anyone trying to do that.

We have a small domestic compost bin at work, which quite happily deals with the green waste from 20+ people in the office - but if we wanted to compost the green waste we produce (tree arisings/grass cuttings, etc.) commercially, we'd have to get a licence.

Hello,

Thank you for your reply.

Im not planning on going into this type of business,
but wanted to find out if someone locally is licensed or not to run this type of business.

Thanks Again

All of the above would apply - whoever is doing it.

Now that's good link.

It shows that my neighbours do not have a license to carry the crap that they do on the back of the wagons they park in their drive.

But then should you need a license to run a business clearing out back yards & shops?
Any comments I give here are my own opinions, for legal advise check with a qualified solicitor.

Well they should have a waste carriers license.

A chap near me runs a business from home,
doing household and garden rubbish clearance and he has a waste carriers licence just checked today to see if he does or not.

Dear Stacey

What about the other waste which people may offload onto you. Who will test it to see what you have and know what effects it may have. Not everyone is going to be trustworthy and only give you thinga to save our planet. Waste is a high risk business.

Yes you would need a change of use permission. Normally high risk waste businesses are limited to designated areas specially allocated for high risk of pollution. Your idea is well meaning but not very practical

Best regards

It seems if you are taking your own waste to the tip you need a licence
I know nothing about the law.

From that link: "From January 2014, you must register as a waste carrier, broker or dealer if you do any of the following as part of your business"

Having a carrier licence is NOT a permission to keep waste at your premises. It is simply a legal permission to carry waste from the point of its production to a licenced receiving station/point. Waste Stations are separately licensed and their are various categories and hazardous waste disposal is the hardest of all to get a licence to operate. There is somewhere on the EA website a list of licenced sites and what they can receive but I think this is now commercial view only. Many local authorities issue the list for their county publicly on internet if you do a google search.

This link gives interesting reading https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j ... 1339,d.d2s

There is an exemption to carry your own waste to a licenced site

Hi,

Wagons? That sounds like they are large vehicles (plural) which might indicate they need an OPERATORS LICENCE ... operating base, certificate of professional competence, vehicle maintenance contracts, tachographs, drivers hours, etc. Do not know the requirements, so best do a Google.

There are websites that can tell you if the wagons are taxed, and what category, insured, and probably taxed.

There may even be movements, or planning restrictions on parking commercial vehicles on the property.
