Commercial Waste with the Vale of Glamorgan Council

As a business, you have a legal duty to dispose of waste correctly. This is known as your duty of care.


You need to keep your waste safe and use a registered waste carrier to dispose of or recycle it. Your duty of care lasts from the moment the waste is produced to when it is received by your registered waste carrier.


As a registered waste carrier, our low cost, flexible and sustainable commercial waste service is designed to make managing your waste easy.


Commercial recycling vehicle and site


Please note: We have launched a new commercial waste service to help you meet the latest workplace recycling regulations in Wales. From 20 March 2024 you will no longer be able to purchase or collect rolls of clear commercial recycling sacks or blue commercial general waste sacks from our outlets. From week commencing 8 April 2024 we will no longer be able to collect mixed recycling in our clear commercial recycling sacks.


Why choose us?

 We make managing your commercial waste easy by offering:


Free duty of care certificates

You need a duty of care certificate as proof that you dispose of your waste legally and responsibly.


We provide free duty of care certificates for all our customers. 


You should keep your duty of care certificate for a minimum of two years.

A flexible service that is great value for money

 Our commercial waste recycling service allows you to choose

from three subscription options designed to meet the needs of all business types and sizes.


Our optional food and general waste add-ons give you the flexibility to customise your service and get the best value for money.

A sustainable service that helps you meet Welsh Government regulations

New workplace recycling regulations start from 6 April 2024. From this date, workplaces will have to separate their waste for recycling the same way most households do now.


Our commercial waste service is designed to make meeting these regulations easy.
