Using a registered waste management company with the Environment Agency and waste collection authority are the preferred method of disposing of your bulky waste/junk. A transfer note would be giving to you meaning that your waste is now the responsibility of the waste carrier and will be disposed of responsibly at a registered waste transfer station.
The problem you face when using unregistered waste carrier company is that your waste is more likely to be fly-tipped and no paper work is given to prove the transportation of your waste.
If your waste is fly-tipped and traced back you are also responsible for criminal offences, fly-tippers can be fined up to £50,000 in Magistrates’ Courts, face unlimited fines in higher courts, as well as community punishment orders or prison sentences of up to 5 years’.
It is very important you check whether they are licensed to transport your waste/junk and proof of transfer in order to be able to produce on request by your local council or EA regulators.

Fly-tipping is a criminal offence that can cause serious pollution to the environment, human health and wildlife. It costs landowners and the taxpayer an estimated £100 million every year to clean up in the UK. So in a way you are paying for your waste twice if given to companies that would fly-tip your waste.
