A company that carries out waste collection on a professional basis must notify the municipal environmental authorities of its activities.

The company may include the information on all reception points to which it delivers waste for intermediate storage.

The operator carrying out waste collection on a professional basis must keep a record of the collected waste. The details of the type and quality of the collected waste, the hazardous properties of hazardous waste, the quality, origin and place of delivery of the waste and its transport and treatment must be recorded in accounting. This information must be stored for six years.

The notification must include details on who commissions the waste collection and who is responsible for the collected waste. The notification must state whether the reception point has an environmental permit and whether the collection is carried out continuously or on a fixed-term basis. If a company operates in numerous municipalities, it must submit an application for the approval of its activities to the ELY Centre with jurisdiction over the area in which the majority of its operations take place.
