Find waste carriers

You can find a list of waste conveyors in the Danish National Waste Register. Choose 'Transportør' from the list “Type”. All waste conveyors are in alphabetical order and it's the easiest way to search a company.

Attention

The Statutory Order on the National Waste Register does not allow a registration in the National Waste Register for one conveyor of waste to be extended to subcontractors. This is true for both Danish and foreign companies. If a conveyor of waste makes a contractual agreement with another company regarding the transportation of specific shipment of waste, the second company is then a conveyor of waste and therefore must be registered in the National Waste Register.

Thus, it is the company actually carrying out the transportation of waste which is legally required to be registered in the National Waste Register. Therefore ALL conveyors of waste Danish as well as foreign with their own convey permit are required to register in the National Waste Register.
