Public Registers

The environmental Agencies have public registers showing all those registered for specific areas of waste related legislation. These may not always be up to date as it can take some weeks for a new registration to be added. It is also sometimes difficult to find a company by a name search as it depends how a company has completed their registration. ABC Ltd, for instance, may have been registered as A B C Ltd, A.B.C. Ltd or A BC ltd. Just typing in ABC Ltd would therefore not produce an entry. It is therefore best to do a postcode search if you cannot find the business under their normal name.
