Everyone needs their recycling and waste collected, and more often than not, businesses aren’t included in municipal trash collection. Unfortunately, refuse isn’t going to collect itself, and this is where a waste hauler needs to be contacted and a collection schedule set up.

Whoever’s responsible for setting this up will have the daunting task of calling several haulers in the area which can incredibly time consuming.

An easier way to do this is by contacting one person or organization who will have all this information on hand and will be able to set your business up with the best hauler for your needs

This person/organization is known the Waste Broker.

The Waste Broker serves as the middle man between individuals and business that are in need of trash hauling services, connecting them with other waste industry parties.

What a broker can do differs depending on where they do business. In the UK, for instance, Waste Brokers are separated into two tiers, an Upper Tier broker provides waste series professionally.

A lower tier Broker includes waste collection/disposal/regulation authorities, charitable organizations, volunteer groups, and brokers who arrange the recovery and disposal of mine or quarry waste, agricultural waste, and animal by-products.

If a business in the UK arranges for someone else to buy, sell or dispose of waste (aka a Waste Broker) they are required to register with the government, any broker that doesn’t do so can be fined up to £5,000!

These regulations ensure that dealers are only using waste haulers that following proper waste management procedures protecting both your business and the environment.

Searching for a waste hauler doesn’t need to be a waste of time!
