The trade waste collection service is not covered by business rates so there is a charge for collection and disposal. You have the option of using the service we provide or you can make your own arrangements with a private licensed waste management contractor. You cannot use the domestic service for disposal of trade waste and access to the Recycling Parks for the disposal of trade waste is not permitted.

Traders who breach their duty of care in their handling of waste may commit an offence under Section 34 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990, for which the maximum penalty is £5,000 at a magistrates court, or an unlimited fine upon conviction at a crown court. You are required, by law, to produce copies of your current Duty of Care Waste Transfer notes, when asked by an authorised officer to prove that you are disposing of your waste in a responsible manner.
