Business waste collections

Your responsibilities

All businesses must make arrangements with a registered waste carrier for the disposal of waste that they generate.

Waste removal is not part of business rates and it is illegal to dispose business waste in litter bins, household waste bins, public recycling sites or placed on the highway.

You need to store waste appropriately on your premises and make sure it is collected by a registered waste carrier.

You need a Waste Transfer Note for all of your waste disposal arrangements. This will be provided by your registered waste carrier and should accompany any transfer of waste. In the case of regular collections a Multiple Collection Waste Transfer Note can be provided and last up to a year.

You must keep copies of your Waste Transfer Notes for two years and provide copies to the Environment Agency or your local Council if they are required.
