Commercial waste

Commercial waste is any waste produced from the activity of a business.

Commercial waste also includes any waste that comes from:

If you run a business, you have a legal Duty of Care to manage any waste you produce correctly.

You can find more detailed information about your responsibilities on GOV.UK.
