Private contractors carrying out work

Private letting owners and letting agents operate commercially. They have a duty of care to dispose of waste materials left at the premises.

Contractor's waste cannot be collected as part of a household bulky waste collection. Before a contractor carries out works at your home you should check if they have a waste carrier's license. The contractor is responsible for removing any waste created.
