The landing page for Business Waste (Commercial Waste / Trade Waste).

Our business waste service offers businesses within our districts refuse (general rubbish) and dry mixed recycling collections.

We also collect glass for recycling, and waste from one-off events.

Waste collections are not covered by the business rates bill. Businesses are responsible for managing, storing and disposing of their waste (as per Section 34 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990).

Read our booklet about disposing of business waste for more information.
