HRL Licences and Certification

We have all up to date and relevant licences and certificates. All our services comply with current environmental legislation and are operated within the scope of the licenses we hold.

HRL are a fully registered, certificated and compliant company. Customers are welcome to visit our facilities and see how we dispose and recycle waste.

You will find all our certification details below:

Waste Management Licence: EAWML/60974


The Environmental Permitting Regulations (England and Wales) 2010 were introduced on 6 April 2010, replacing the 2007 Regulations.

The 2007 Regulations combined the Pollution Prevention and Control (PPC) and Waste Management Licensing (WML) regulations.

A Waste Management Licence issued under these regulations authorises the deposit, recovery and disposal of controlled waste. The Environment Agency defines controlled waste as materials from industrial, commercial or household sources and premises. This covers solid and liquid waste and both are regulated, even if they are not classed as hazardous.

Anybody who removes waste must be in possession of a licence or an exemption unless they use a fully licensed third party. At HRL we can advise on permit and licence requirements and have all the licenses required to deal with your waste management needs.

A download of our Waste Management Licence (EAWML/60974) will be available here shortly.

Waste Carriers Licence: CB/PE5133HA


If you actually transport waste, arrange for its transportation off site or buy or sell waste you must be registered as a waste carrier or use a contractor who themselves are registered.

At HRL we hold a full upper tier licence for the carriage, purchase and sale of waste. This means that you can be confident that your waste will not only be transported safely but when it arrives at its destination it will be dealt with according to legislation.

In the waste and reclamation industry today it is imperative that you not only have all the necessary Licences but that you also carry adequate insurance cover. Whilst we take every care when it comes to recycling and disposal of waste the very nature of our industry means that all sorts of risks can apply.

At HRL we have comprehensive insurance to cover for all eventualities and are happy to supply customers with evidence of this cover and any details they need for Method Statements etc.
