Commercial waste

All businesses have a legal Duty of Care to dispose of their waste in a responsible manner, using a licensed carrier and obtaining a Controlled Waste Transfer Note.

The Duty of Care is a law, which states that you must take all reasonable steps to keep waste safe. If you give waste to someone else, you must be sure that they're authorised to take it and can transport, recycle or dispose of it safely. If you break this law you can be fined up to £5,000.

Many local companies can provide a sack collection, wheeled bin or skip based collection and recycling services for trade waste. If you're prepared to sort your waste you may be able to negotiate lower costs than for mixed waste.

City Centre Commercial Trade Waste Collections

Businesses in the city centre are reminded that collections only take place between Monday and Friday. Please do not place waste on the streets over the weekend as this causes a nuisance, attracts vermin and may result in a fine.
