Environmental Legislation

Regional Waste Recycling operates in a highly-regulated industry but it is our company policy to certify our operations far beyond the minimum legal requirement.

Here are a few of the accreditations, licences and certifications that Regional Waste Recycling has achieved in order to ensure that its processes remain at the forefront of the recycling and waste management industry.

Waste carrier's licence. In order to transport, arrange for the disposal or recovery of waste, a company needs to have a waste carrier's licence from the The Environment Agency. Regional Waste Recycling is a licensed waste carrier (registration number CB/PP3293BV).
