Commercial waste collections

What is commercial waste? 

Commercial waste is waste from premises used for a trade or business, or for the purposes of sport, recreation or entertainment. This includes any commercial activity you run from your home.

Your responsibilities

You must deal responsibly with any waste your business produces. This is known as your duty of care. Your duty of care lasts from the moment the waste is produced to when it's received by a business that is authorised to deal with it. Commercial waste collections are chargeable and do not form part of your business rates.

How to arrange a commercial waste collection

Our commercial waste service offers a range of collection containers for hire which are suitable for most business premises. The table below shows the size of containers we offer and the approximate amount of sacks each container holds.
