If you generate waste from a business it is classified as commercial waste and cannot be disposed of in your normal 'household waste' bin, recycling bin/ bags or deposited at Household Recycling Centres.

Contact your local council to see if they have a trade waste collection service, or find a licensed waste contractor or skip hire company. This applies to businesses run from home as well as dedicated business premises.

If you produce or handle commercial waste, you need to ensure your business complies with legislation laid down in the Environmental Protection Act 1990. The Environment Agency will advise you and help you to ensure that you comply with legislation.
