We have a duty to collect commercial waste if requested.
However, we advise a company requiring a waste collection service to seek quotes from the private sector as this is invariably the most cost effective solution.
We take an active interest in how commercial waste is collected and disposed of and can require businesses to provide details of the arrangements they have in place.
As well as storing waste in a safe and secure manner, businesses must ensure that their contractor is licensed with the Environment Agency as a waste carrier.
The contractor must also supply its customers with a waste transfer note, which describes the kind of waste collected and where it will be disposed.
Household Waste Recycling Centres do not accept commercial waste. These sites only take household waste.
