UK businesses generated an estimated 37.2 million tonnes of waste in 2019.
If you’re one of those businesses and you need to get rid of your waste, you might be wondering how much it’s going to cost you.
What responsibilities do businesses have regarding waste?
No one wants to visit a business or work in one that has bags of waste around its premises.
Waste not only looks bad for your business, but it can also smell and attract vermin. We’ve all read the horror stories about a rat running through a restaurant, and you don’t want your business to be the one making the headlines.
Businesses who do not dispose of their waste correctly also risk being fined by the Environmental Health department at their local council.
As a business you have several legal obligations regarding your waste.
- You must keep your waste to a minimum by preventing waste, reusing it, or recycling it.
- You must safely and securely store your waste.
- You must check whoever disposes of your waste has a waste carriers’ licence.
At Central Waste we have taken care of all of this for you. The only thing you need to do is fill in our free duty of care form which states you have sorted your waste into the correct bin and gives us permission to dispose of your waste.
A duty of care waste transfer note will need to completed once a year to be valid.
What is a waste carriers’ licence?
Anyone who moves waste must have a waste carriers’ licence. Central Waste have this licence which is verified by the Environment Agency.
Businesses should complete a waste transfer note allowing any company to dispose of their waste.
A waste carriers’ licence costs over £100 and needs to be renewed on a regular basis. Add to this securely storing the waste, and transporting it, the cost of disposing of your own waste can mount up, just like your rubbish.
Which is why companies choose to hire a professional company to handle their waste for them.
How is commercial waste price calculated?
Trade waste prices depend on how many collections your business needs and how much waste you need to dispose of.
We can tailor prices to your business, so you can reduce costs.
