Trade Waste

Duty of Care

Under the Environmental Protection Act, any waste produced in the course of a business is regulated by law. A legal ‘Duty of Care’ for waste applies to all businesses and if you fail to comply with this Duty it could result in your business being prosecuted and heavily fined.

We want to make sure this does not happen.

The collection of waste from businesses is not covered in your business rates. Commercial waste must not be passed off as household waste; disposed of within household waste collections provided by us or placed in street litter bins.
