Perish the thought Mary. It's great that some people have the sense to question waste collectors instead of turning a blind eye and just paying someone a few quid to make their rubbish disappear. Anyone that avails of a waste collection service, be it rubbish or muckaway, should always ask to see a copy of the carriers waste collection permit. If they can't produce a copy, then avoid them at all cost, otherwise you could end up with a nasty fine.
I'm all legal and above board, insurance, permits, etc. and have no problem providing proof to any customers as such.
The 'waste' is, as far as i'm aware, going to be soil, blocks or concrete. Which can be used as fill in a garden or for a road into a new house.
Galway county council don't mind you using it for fill around a house just as long as you don't take the p*** and operate an illegal dumping facility.
At least that's what they told me.
