All businesses are required by law to manage and dispose of their waste responsibly.
Please note: It is an offence to put waste or recycling from a business into a domestic bin, or to take it to a recycling centre (tip).
You should meet this responsibility by ensuring:
The easiest way to ensure your waste is managed and disposed of responsibly is to apply for our business waste and recycling collection.
If you fail to comply with your legal responsibilities, you will be issued a section 47 notice with instructions on how to store, dispose and present your waste for collection.
If you do not follow instructions on the section 47 notice, a Fixed Penalty Notice of £80 is issued.
You have 14 days to pay. If the notice is not paid within this time, we will begin legal action through the magistrates court. In court the maximum penalty is a £1000 fine with court costs.
