What is commercial waste for an office?
5th May 2023
Are you unsure about what is considered commercial waste in an office setting? According to UK law, commercial waste includes any waste that comes from a business, trade, or commercial activity. This means that waste produced by an office, including paper, cardboard, packaging, and food waste, is classified as commercial waste and must be disposed of correctly.
It’s important for office managers to be aware of their legal obligations when it comes to commercial waste. The law requires businesses to store their waste securely, ensuring that it cannot escape or cause pollution. They must also ensure that their waste is collected and transported by a licensed waste carrier and disposed of at a licensed waste facility.
Failure to comply with these regulations can lead to fines and even criminal charges, so it’s crucial for businesses to take their waste management responsibilities seriously.
