North Wales Police and Natural Resources Wales work in partnership to tackle waste crime.  We are aware that there are a number of individuals and businesses advertising waste collection services on social media who are not permitted to carry out this activity.  As a waste producer, you are responsible for your waste and you have a duty of care to ensure that it is disposed of lawfully.  You can do this by checking that whoever you employ to dispose of your waste is a registered waste carrier by checking the public register Natural Resources Wales / Waste carriers, brokers and dealers public register.  If your waste is fly tipped by somebody else you may still be liable to prosecution. 

If you have any information about illegal waste activity, please contact Natural Resources Wales on 03000 653000 or Crime Stoppers Wales anonymously on 0800 555 111
