Officers target waste carriers in Lincolnshire


Enforcement officers carried out 46 spot checks on vehicles in Lincolnshire on Wednesday (September 30) in a bid to identify illegal waste carriers. The Environment Agency, Lincolnshire Police, Immigration Enforcement and officers from other agencies stopped and checked the vehicles to crackdown on rogue traders.

The operation targeted vehicle drivers who transport waste without proper authorisation or written description of waste. Officers also checked whether carriers were transporting waste to authorised and legitimate sites where it would be handled properly.

A total 46 vehicles were checked, of which 13 carry waste past of their business. Officers provided advice to six carriers that needed to carry the correct registration and transfer notes. Senior environmental crime officer Helen Silk said it was important to ensure businesses carried the correct documents to allow them to transport and transfer waste.
