Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland
If you are registered as a waste carrier with the NIEA you are able to collect and carry waste in Northern Ireland.
If you wish to carry waste in Scotland, England or Wales you must register as a waste carrier in one of these countries. Usually that will be the country where you will do most work. This will allow you to carry waste anywhere in Great Britain (Scotland, England and Wales).
If you are registered as a waste carrier with SEPA, you can operate anywhere in Great Britain (that is in Scotland, England and Wales). If you are registered as a waste carrier with either the Environment Agency in England or with Natural Resources Wales, you can also operate anywhere in Great Britain, including Scotland.
If you want to carry waste in Northern Ireland you will need to apply for a waste carriers licence from the NIEA as well.

My Year at NetRegs, A reflection on my time as an intern with the NetRegs team at SEPA. An overview of all the activities and projects I had the opportunity to participate in during my Bright Green Environmental Placement.
A day with Hydrology, SEPA's hydrometry unit is responsible for around 400 gauging stations and 350 rainfall monitoring sites. River gauging stations are important as they allow river levels to be monitored so flood events can be predicted and flood warnings sent out.
