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'.
Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils are working together to provide a joint service for the collection of business waste and recycling.
We offer collections of general business waste and a dedicated glass service, as well as a separate collection service for dry mixed recyclables.
There are four different sizes of wheeled business bins available.
We offer set prices which are agreed and fixed annually in April. There is a substantial discount available for customers with more than one bin for each type of waste.
Alternatively, if you prefer to phone:
There are Terms and Conditions that must be followed for customers who use the Business Waste scheme.
We can provide one-off waste and recycling collections (including glass) for large events. Please contact us so we can find out more details about your event to see what we can do to support it. Email the Recycling Team.
