Commercial Waste

Businesses have a duty of care to dispose of rubbish responsibly

Owners of businesses must make sure they deal with any waste they produce in a responsible way. We do not provide rubbish or recycling collection services for commercial waste (though if required we can ask our contractor Veolia to provide a quote for a commercial collection service). 

Business owners should check that any company/contractor they employ to dispose of their waste is licenced to do so.  The Environment Agency Waste Register lists licenced waste disposal companies.

Business owners have a duty of care to make sure the waste they generate is disposed of properly. If rubbish is found fly tipped and traced back to a business, the business will be held responsible, and could be prosecuted.
