Where you can take business or commercial waste

As a business or commercial organisation you are legally required to dispose of your waste responsibly. This is part of your duty of care

There are a number of ways to dispose of commercial waste:

  • use a trade waste service provided by your district council
  • use a licensed waste contractor
  • take your waste to a waste transfer station
  • hire a skip

The Right Waste Right Place campaign gives advice to small businesses and establishments on meeting their Duty of Care obligations as practically as possible, to ensure their waste is properly disposed of.

Whetstone Transfer Station

Charges for disposing waste

There is a minimum charge of £28.50 (including VAT) for disposing waste.

If the waste weighs less than a tonne you will either pay a proportion of the charge or the minimum charge, whichever is greater.
