ADLib Glossary (M)

Definition:

Main business (waste)

Where the purpose of the business is to collect or transport waste you cannot benefit from Exemption 40.

It normally applies where you are carrying out work that is not at your own site. For example if you are a tyre fitter replacing a tyre at the side of the road you may take that discarded tyre back to your depot to await collection.

However you cannot offer a service collecting waste tyres from a number of different depots and taking them back to another site unless you have a waste management licence for that site.
