Coronavirus: information and advice.

 

Due to essential maintenance, online Council Tax services will be unavailable on Saturday 4 December between 4–11pm. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Business Waste Collections

All businesses must dispose of their waste responsibly. We offer a straightforward and competitively priced business waste service, with no hidden costs.

We provide a range of containers and collection frequencies to cater for all requirements. There is one simple 'per collection charge' which includes container provision, collection charges and disposal costs. VAT is not charged to businesses within the district. 

Our collection services include:

  • General (non-recyclable) waste collections
  • Dry mixed recycling collections
  • Glass only collections

Fill in the form below to sign up for any of our business collections.

Payments

Invoices are raised annually in advance for this service, usually charged in quarterly instalments. Any additional collections you arrange will be invoiced shortly after the collection. 

We provide all our service users with ‘Duty of Care Waste Transfer Notes’ which are legally required annually in accordance with Section 34 (1) of the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
