Working towards better places for people and wildlife, and to support sustainable development, the Environment Agency is England’s non-departmental public body for protecting and enhancing the environment. Sponsored by Defra, some of their responsibilities include:

  • Regulating major industry and waste
  • Treatment of contaminated land
  • Water quality and resources

Waste Carrier Licence

By law, businesses that transport and dispose of waste must be registered with the Environment Agency. RJS Waste Management has a Certificate of Registration under the Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2011 as an upper tier waste carrier, broker and dealer. This means we can collect, carry and dispose of your waste in our waste carrier licenced vehicles.

The Joint Supply Chain Accreditation Register (JOSCAR) is a collaborative tool used by prime contractors in the aerospace, defence and security industries. It acts as a single source for pre-qualification and compliance information. Using JOSCAR helps determine whether a supplier is “fit for business”.

JOSCAR accreditation

As a cross-sector collaborative solution, JOSCAR accreditation will help RJS Waste Management reduce the time, cost, resources and duplication currently needed to provide information to major clients.

Holding common supplier information in a central system allows information to be accessed by all aerospace, defence and security organisations who are looking for waste management, asbestos services and demolition works providers.

Safety Schemes in Procurement

SSIP member scheme seal

Founded in 2009, the Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) is an umbrella organisation supported by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). With a mission is to reduce occupational health and safety assessment duplication, the SSIP Member Scheme boasts more than 81,000 suppliers.

SSIP certification

Like all SSIP-certified companies, RJS Waste Management meets the SSIP Core Criteria. With the SSIP accreditation recognised throughout the UK, our clients (and potential clients) can easily check our health and safety compliance.

Rather than completing several health and safety assessments for different clients, SSIP streamlines the tendering process by enabling us (and all contractors/buyers) to follow a closely related framework. This saves time and money for all involved.

Prompt Payment Code


Prompt Payment Code logo

The Prompt Payment Code (PPC), administered by the Small Business Commissioner on behalf of the Department for Business & Trade, was introduced in 2008.

Paying partners promptly and within agreed payment terms is not only an ethical responsibility but economically beneficial for all parties and the wider economy.

The PPC encourages a culture of prompt payment between businesses, especially from larger to smaller businesses.

While signing up is voluntary, adherence to the Code benefits buyers as well as suppliers. After all, cash fuels growth for small and medium businesses. Without speed and certainty of payment, cash flow suffers, employees may not get paid and livelihoods are put at risk.

We at RJS Waste Management pride ourselves on meeting the code criteria and championing fellow SMEs.
