Our Services

Your Responsibilities

Under Section 34 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990, all businesses have a duty of care for the storage and disposal of their waste. Business rates do not cover businesses for any recycling or waste collections. It is the businesses owners responsibility to manage all of the waste the business produces.

For more information on your duty of care as a business, view our information booklet 'Disposing of Waste from your Business'.
