Lower Tier Waste Carrier License
If you collect agricultural wastes from other farmers to take for disposal or recycling you will need to register as a lower tier carrier (this used to be known as a professional carrier).
Registering as a lower tier carrier is currently free and it lasts for life.
Please note that from the end of December 2013 if you normally and regularly** carry your own agricultural waste to a site for disposal you will need to register as a lower tier carrier. This will be a one-off registration.
**You would not have to register to be a lower tier carrier if your waste is normally collected by a waste contractor but for some reason you needed to transport your own farm waste on a one-off basis.
