Commercial Waste Services

Responsible Retailers scheme

The Responsible Retailers scheme is a voluntary, signed agreement between the Council and local businesses, which outlines mutual responsibilities and commitments, to assist businesses and make improvements.

The scheme aims to give recognition to businesses in the Royal Borough who have committed to trading responsibly, by keeping their area clean and litter free, managing waste and noise, and ensuring an appropriate waste contract is in place.

The aims:

  • To change behaviour.
  • Help the business understand its role.
  • Provide support for the business.
  • Encourage an ongoing and active responsibility for dealing with local concerns.
  • Achieve resource efficiencies for all of the involved agencies.
  • Council publicity and certificate to display.

Businesses can benefit from the Responsible Retailer Scheme in many ways through improved partnership working and efficiencies, sustained improvement as well as free publicity.

There is even the potential to have a monthly/yearly competition between members of the scheme to award those businesses that make a distinctly positive contribution to improving their locality.
