Collector licence

A collector’s licence allows the licensee to operate as a collector in the area of the issuing local authority. It does not allow the collector to operate in any other local authority area, so a separate licence has to be obtained from each council the collector wishes to operate in.

  • Collector Licence (Renewal) for 3 years £250
  • Variation (Site Licence to Collector Licence) £40
  • Variation (Collector Licence to Site Licence) £65 (if more than one site is specified, +£35 per site)
