What a Mess!

Lauren sends a note of warning to Stoke locals, due to a recent two-week break, she says, I missed our local council waste collections, so I ended up using a man and the van rubbish clearance service I found on Facebook, it cost me £35 and the guy fly tipped the waste. I ended up going to court and being fined as it was my fault for not making sure the guy was a registered waste carrier.

Lauren urges anyone wishing to have waste removed to check that the company you hire has a waste carriers licence issued by the UK environment agency. You can check to see if a business is registered here

Also check to see if they are registered with AFTA, the anti fly-tipping association which you can check here

Last thing you want to do is be taken to court and prosecuted, and end up with a criminal record. Be very wary when hiring these men and van type services to clear your waste.
