How should commercial waste be disposed of?

20th April 2023

As a business owner, it’s important to understand how to dispose of commercial waste properly. In the UK, there are laws and regulations in place that businesses must follow to ensure waste is disposed of safely and responsibly.

How should commercial waste be disposed of?

Here are some key regulations to keep in mind:

  1. Environmental Protection Act 1990: This act sets out the framework for waste management and establishes the duty of care that businesses have towards their waste. It also outlines the powers of local authorities to regulate and enforce waste management.
  2. Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2011: These regulations specify the responsibilities of businesses in England and Wales for waste management. They cover everything from segregation and storage of waste to the use of authorised waste carriers.
  3. Waste (Scotland) Regulations 2012: Similar to the regulations in England and Wales, the Waste (Scotland) Regulations 2012 set out the requirements for waste management in Scotland.
  4. Waste (Amendment) (Northern Ireland) Regulations 2016: These regulations apply to businesses in Northern Ireland and outline the requirements for the disposal of waste.
  5. Duty of Care Regulations: The Duty of Care Regulations require businesses to take all reasonable steps to ensure that waste is managed safely and responsibly. This includes ensuring that waste is stored securely, transported by authorised carriers, and disposed of at licensed facilities.

By following these regulations, businesses can help to reduce the environmental impact of waste and avoid potential legal issues. For more information on the regulations, you can refer to the links above.
