Bins, rubbish & recycling Commercial waste collections

Commercial waste disposal for businesses

Any waste businesses produce is classed as commercial waste.  Businesses have legal obligations to fulfil regarding how they store and dispose of rubbish from premises which is called "Duty of Care". 

Businesses should have their own arrangements, for commercial waste and should not be disposing of rubbish in domestic bins, they should also keep their shop fronts clean. We don't offer commercial waste collections.

If there are problems with the storage and disposal of waste from a business, or litter on shop frontages, we can take action to ensure the business comply with the law.

Businesses are not allowed to burn commercial waste, not even cardboard.
