Making it easier to get rid of waste

A new council scheme will make it easier to find a legal and responsible waste carrier to get rid of large items.

Being able to get rid of waste easily and responsibly is key to preventing fly tipping.

Most people want to do the right thing, so apart from clamping down on offenders it's important to make it as easy as possible to get rid of bigger items properly.

The 'Accredited Leeds Waste Carrier' scheme will be one directory where you can look up waste carriers (people you pay to take away hard to get rid of items like building rubble) to make sure they are accredited and will dispose of your items responsibly. This also protects you from being accidentally implicated in fly tipping, avoiding large fines.
