Trade Waste

Duty of Care

If you have a business you have a legal obligation to ensure that any waste you generate is disposed of by a Registered Waste Carrier; this is your Duty of Care. This means you need to have a waste collection arranged with a Registered Waste Carrier. Failure to comply with your Duty of Care responsibilities could lead to a £300 fixed penalty fine or an unlimited fine at Court.

Business waste can not be disposed of at home, at Household Waste and Recycling Sites or Local Neighbourhood Recycling Points. Waste collections are not provided through your Business Rate payments, collection facilities have to be set up separately.
