Trade Waste

Commercial waste collection

View pages in this section

We do not offer a commercial waste collection service.

It is an offence under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 to present trade waste as domestic waste. Therefore, all businesses/organisations have a Duty of Care to separate their waste before collection and must arrange for a separate collection or heavy penalties may be charged. 

Commercial waste includes any business making a profit as well as not-for-profit organisations. 

For further information on the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and the legal obligations of businesses under the Duty of Care regulations, go to http://www.legislation.gov.uk/.
