Businesses of all sizes can benefit by cutting down on waste. Reducing the amount of waste you create will not only save you money, in both disposal and purchasing costs, but it will also reduce the impact of your business on the environment. This could give your business a competitive edge and market advantage.

Responsible Waste Disposal

Responsible disposal of waste is regulated by law and businesses have a legal duty to provide appropriate arrangements for the disposal of their waste. Business rates do NOT cover your waste disposal. If you do not dispose of your business waste responsibly, you could be fined.

To find out more about your legal requirements, please contact the Environment Agency on 03708 506 506.

Waste from any trade or commercial activity cannot be taken to the Household Waste Recycling Centres.

This includes:

• any waste produced on a business premises or as a result of business activities
• waste generated within a residential home or garden as a result of a business activity (for example garden waste generated by a landscape gardener or building waste as a result of removing a fitted kitchen)

Action will be taken against businesses using the facilities in an unlawful manner. To find out how you can recycle and dispose of your business waste responsibly visit Services
