Wealden District Council

Trade Waste

In April 2013, Wealden District Council sold its commercial waste and recycling collection business to Kier Services (external link).

Former customers of the Council who wish to contact Kier can do so using the contact details below. Please note, this is not a recommendation by the Council and is purely for information purposes.

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.
