Collection contracts and records

If your business produces waste, you have a legal responsibility to dispose of it safely.

Your business rates do not cover business waste and recycling collection and disposal costs.

If you run a business, you have a duty to:

  • arrange and pay for the disposal of waste that your business produces
  • keep your waste in proper containers
  • have a collection contract in place
  • keep records - waste transfer notes.

Find out more about your waste disposal responsibilities on Gov.UK

Use a licensed waste collection company

All waste carriers must have a license to collect waste.

Check the Environment Agency register of waste carriers

We also have a business waste and recycling service that you can use.
