How We Maintain Compliance

Over recent years, waste management legislation has been tightened up to ensure the industry is compliant with regulations.

The aims of these rules are to protect the environment and those who run legitimate businesses, such as McCarthy Marland (Recycling) Ltd and challenge the stereotypes surrounding the industry, exposing those unscrupulous outfits in the process.

Waste management regulations are in place to protect human health during the recovery and disposal of waste and require those in the industry to comply with permits, registration and inspection requirements.

Environment Agency Requirements

It is required, by law, that anyone storing waste on site, must hold an Environmental Permit. This effectively registers a business with the Environmental Agency and allows them to perform inspections to check that they are compliant with waste management protocol and procedures. If an operator is deemed not to be following the rules, they can be subject to quite hefty fines and in the process, their reputation will be damaged.

You will find copies to download of our Waste Management Licence and our  Waste Carriers Licence, issued by the Environment Agency.
