Business and commercial waste
Last updated: 9 November 2020


You must deal responsibly with any waste your business produces. This is known as your 'duty of care'. Business waste includes any waste that comes from:

  • construction
  • demolition
  • industry
  • agriculture
  • any commercial activity - including any you run from your home

Your duty of care lasts from the moment the waste is produced to when it's received by a business that is authorised to deal with it. For example, a registered waste carrier or waste transfer station.
