All businesses are required by Law, to manage and dispose of their waste responsibly. The removal of waste from non-domestic premises is a separate chargeable service.  It is not included within your Business Rates.  The Council offers a bulk bin and grey sack collection service for commercial customers at reasonable rates.  However, other registered collection companies operate within the Borough and customers are not obliged to use the Council service. If you do not dispose of your waste via a registered carrier, you are breaking the Law.  

Please find the charges below for our services.  

The trade waste collection service is operated from Monday to Friday (inclusive)
