It's that word...'could'..it also means ' could not'. The word 'might' also means 'might not'. I don't think anyone knows for certain, and to think these are top people in top jobs not knowing anything for certain. A bit like the government really.
I rang my local tip and asked em if i could drop a load of Cardboard from boxes what i had in my cellar and from xmas, because i have a van the answers no, so Ballox it got burnt, i tried to recycle but they turned it down.
You can apply to the council for a special permit which allows you to take a commercial vehicle to the council tip up to six times in a year.
The fact that the paperwork requests more information than a HMRC tax return, plus a copy of the vehicle's V5, makes this a none starter, the council do not need to know anything other than the make and registration for the permit, and the source of the waste.
And then they wonder why fly tipping is on the increase and costing them far more than it would have cost them to process the waste in the first place. Then again we have our EE cousins to blame as most used the tips to deposit trade waste instead of going down the correct path of skips and waste companies.
