Does anyone know if you need a waste carrier licence for the following;
1. A self employed man with a tow truck picks up scrap cars (advert in local rag) and either strips them in his own yard/home or takes them direct to a scrappy.
2. The local rag and bone man coming around the streets with his horn and picking up old washing machines, iron gates etc and loading them onto his flat back transit.
3. A tree surgeon who chops trees down and carries away the branches/trunk/green bits in his flat back truck.
I ask because I've used all three recently and never even considered it until I saw a householder in the paper getting prosecuted for not checking the licence of someone who collected his bricks from a wall he had knocked down.
