Registered waste carriers / transporters

If you transport controlled waste, or as a broker arrange the transport of controlled waste, you need to be registered with us. If you are not registered you could be committing a criminal offence and be fined up to £5,000 unless you are exempt from registration.

Public register


A Carrier

A person who transports controlled waste which that person has not produced themselves, to or from any place in Northern Ireland in the course of any business of his or otherwise with a view to profit.

A Broker

An establishment or undertaking which acts as a broker has control of waste in the sense that it arranges for the disposal or recovery on behalf of another and is outside the chain of people who already handle the waste (i.e. producer, holder, carrier, recovery operator, or disposal operator).

Controlled Waste is household, commercial or industrial waste – including waste from construction.

To determine whether or not you are exempt from registration please see 2 (1) of the Controlled Waste (Registration of Carriers and Seizure of Vehicles) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1999.
