Commercial waste recycling

Having introduced recycling bins to 50,000 domestic properties, the council is looking to extend this to commercial waste, subject to market forces. There are currently a number of commercial recycling companies who operate locally.

WEEE Directive

You may have obligations under the The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) if you are a business with electrical/electronic equipment to dispose of, or if you sell electrical or electronic equipment. The directive aims to improve the environmental performance of businesses that manufacture, supply, use, recycle and recover electrical and electronic equipment. Check the Environment Agency website to see if your business has any obligations under this directive.

Your duty of care

If you operate any form of business, you have a legal responsibility under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and other related legislation to safely contain and legally dispose of any waste produced from your business.

If you don’t, you can be taken to court as you are committing offences. Please note that your business rates do not include the cost of your business waste disposal.
