Duty Of Care Waste Transfer Note

I have been informed by the enviromental that i need a Duty Of Care Transfer Note book, i have sourced one from Amazon but i'm struggling to understand how to fill it in as it  comes across that they think you work for one client per day, on my mowing day i have 15 lawns is that 15 tickets which would be very time comsuming, how do you manage the ticket.

  • not sure how it works maybe its changed but as i understand it if you are taking away green business waste generated by yourself ie grass clippings rather than collecting customers own waste no need for individual tickets

    • if in doubt, just think "What would Boris Do?" and crack on irregardless. Petty rules like filling in 15 chittys for cutting a few lawns are a hindrance to Britain's economic recovery. I very much doubt the powers that be will be checking up. He/she/they who dares, wins

  • Does anyone actually do this?  I've got the free "lower tier waste carrier" certificate but I'm certainly not going to start filling waste transfer notes for moving a few bins with grasscuttings in.... I've got better things to do with my time!!.

    We add one in with the relevant EWC code on a clients monthly invoice as a line item  

    When tipping at the council tips they insist we estimate an "annual one", although we tend to use a private transfer station for dealing with our waste. 

  • I was told by the enviomental that it is now a legal requirement to issue tickets as for November 21 also if you carry waste that you are paid fpr you have to have upper tier, ifstopped like i was you can be in trouble.

    They are trying to follow all waste removal and soon it's going digital, don't see how this can work, to me it's another way that the authorities can keep a track on you and your money

    I have been registered for many years.

    On the application forms I have never been asked what I do, what kind of waste I may need to dispose of, where I get it from or where I take it to.

    All they want is my name, address, a statement that I have never been prosecuted and the payment.

    They really don’t know much about me or any waste I dispose of.

    I use a council tip as it's nice and local, no Waste transfer note no dumpy, simple as that!

    It does however have a section allowing you to put the general area for multiple areas/clients. It was'nt always like that though, i just use to pick the biggest job for waste on that particular day and use that adress. I guess plenty of traders complained so it was added a few years ago.

    Form has to have my licence number, business name and address, signed and dated. Also the van registration has to be registered on their system once they have physically checked the licence on the initial visit.

    The form i use is actually provided by the council as a pdf, i just print a few out at a time.

  • I don't do much work that is waste away and when I do I can end up putting waste from different gardens in a builders bag for removal. I don't give individual clients a transfer note but when I have a trailer load ready for the tip (not council) I fill in a ticket that just states how many bags I'm taking or if loose.
