Your commercial waste responsibilities
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.
You must get a duty of care certificate as proof that you dispose of your waste legally and responsibly. You should keep your duty of care certificate for a minimum of two years.
As a registered waste carrier, we provide free duty of care certificates for all our customers. Our low cost, flexible and sustainable commercial waste service is designed to make managing your waste easy.
