Business waste

The landing page for Business Waste (or Trade Waste) Services.

Our business waste service can provide your business with general rubbish (refuse) and recycling collections, all tailored to suit your business' needs. In addition, we can provide glass recycling and one-off event waste collections.

Waste collections are not covered as part of your Business Rates. You are responsible for managing, storing and disposing of all of your waste (see section 34 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990).

Find out more in our Disposing of Waste from your Business booklet.
