All businesses must make arrangements for the disposal of the waste the business generates. It is illegal to dispose of business waste in litter bins, household waste bins, or public sites, such as Household Waste and Recycling Centres.

Businesses also need to store waste appropriately on their premises to prevent it escaping or causing problems, and ensure that it is collected by a registered waste carrier.

A Waste Transfer Note is required for all waste disposal arrangements. It should accompany any transfer of waste, but in the case of regular collections, a multiple collection Waste Transfer Note can last for up to a year. Copies of Waste Transfer Notes must be kept for two years and must be provided to the Environment Agency or local authority on demand.

General information and advice about business waste management can be found on the website.
