Trade waste

If you own a business, you’re legally responsible for safely containing and legally disposing of any waste you produce. This applies even if you run your business from home.

Your business rates do not include the cost of trade waste disposal and failing to dispose of your waste correctly is an offence that can mean fines of up to £50,000 and imprisonment.
