How to legally dispose of your commercial waste
If you operate a business, you have a legal obligation to safely contain and dispose of any waste your business produces. The Environmental Protection Act 1990 sets out businesses’ legal obligations regarding the disposal of controlled waste.
You can use our commercial waste and recycling service or a private licensed waste carrier to dispose of your commercial waste.

It you choose to use a private waste carrier, you can use the Environmental Agency's website to confirm they are licensed. Giving controlled waste to an unlicensed business to carry and dispose of is an offence, and you can be prosecuted.
