All businesses need to ensure they have adequate waste arrangements in place.
Our Officers can request Waste Transfer Notes at any time dating back for up to two years. Failure to comply with this request will result in a £300 Fixed Penalty Notice so it is very important records are kept.
Please be aware that when waste is removed from commercial premises a document called a Waste Transfer Note must be produced, and retained for a period of two years by the producer of the waste and the waste carrier.
If you wish to check to see if a waste carrier is registered you can check using the online facility at the Government's website.
Please note that Commercial Waste cannot be disposed of at a Household Waste Recycling Centre or in a domestic waste bin at home.
If you have concerns that a business is not disposing of their commercial waste in the correct manner, please contact the Enforcement Team for advice on 01507 613551 or 01507 613553.
