Business waste (also known as trade or commercial waste) is anything your business throws away.

It is illegal to dispose of business waste at the tip or in your household bin.

All businesses must be able to produce a record of who produced the waste, where it was from and who collected it, going back at least two years - this is called a duty of care waste transfer notice. 

Businesses can take their own waste to an appropriate licensed site, but must complete a waste transfer note on each occasion.

Household waste recycling sites are not licensed to accept business waste.
