With an extensive range of recycling services we are committed to reducing the amount of waste that goes to landfill, and will work with every business to achieve this.

As the largest collector of waste in the borough we can offer up to three sack collections a day on main roads, and in some cases seven days a week. Our dedicated sales team manages the waste needs of over 3500 businesses within the borough on a daily basis.

Updated Duty of Care from April 2013 (SIC codes) A new version of the Duty of Care was introduced in April 2013 to all commercial waste customers. Businesses have an obligation to prevent waste and to apply the waste hierarchy when transferring waste, and to declare that they have done so as required by Regulation 12 of the Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2011.

Check the Waste Hierarchy Guidance for more information on how to prevent waste and what you can recycle.

The updated Duty of Care also includes an area for you to insert your Standard Industry Classification (SIC) code, identifying which sector the waste is coming from.
Guidance on SIC codes is available from the Office for National Statistics (SIC codes 2007) website. Alternatively go to the Sic Code Support website or contact Office for National Statistics on 01329 444 970 or email
