What is commercial waste disposal?
Commercial waste disposal is a service offered to businesses that require their waste to be efficiently managed in line with government legislation.
Your legal responsibilities in regards to waste disposal include:
- Keeping waste to a minimum by doing everything you can reasonably do to prevent, reuse, recycle, or recover waste
- Sorting and storing your business waste in a safe and secure manner
- Complete waste transfer notes for every load of waste leaving your premises
- Ensuring that your waste carrier is properly registered to dispose of waste
- Preventing your waste carrier from disposing of your waste illegally
- Attending any additional responsibilities, if you deal with hazardous waste
What is considered commercial waste?
Commercial waste is any waste that is produced from a commercial activity. This even includes paper waste that is produced by a home office.
Other types of commercial waste include:
How do you dispose of commercial waste?
Yorwaste works in tandem with Allerton Waste Recovery Park to ensure that all commercial waste is correctly sorted and disposed of. All the general waste we’ll collect from you will be green, renewable energy – which is used to power homes in North Yorkshire.
How should commercial waste be stored before disposal?
The government requires every business to ensure that they correctly sort and store their business waste. Businesses must:
- store waste in a secure place
- use suitable containers that will stop waste escaping
- label containers clearly with the type of waste they contain
- use covers to stop waste blowing away
- use waterproof covers if rain could cause contaminated run-off or prevent the waste from being reused
You’re recommended to store different types of waste separately so that it’s easier to reduce contamination, reuse waste where possible and ensure the correct completion of waste transfer notes.
What types of commercial waste disposal bins are available?
There are a range of commercial waste disposal bins available to businesses, with each suited to storing and disposal of different volumes and types of waste.
High-quality trade waste sacks are best suited for businesses who only produce small amounts of waste, such as home-offices.
We provide two-wheeled bins in 240-litre and 360-litre sizes to cater to busier businesses. These bins ensure that you comply with Environment Protection Act’s requirements for covered bins.
They’re easy to move and are perfect for disposing of food waste, glass waste, general waste and dry mixed recycling.
Our larger four-wheeled bins come in 660-litre and 1100-litre sizes. They hold up to 12 and 18 bin bags respectively. These bins are best suited for larger businesses and those producing more waste such as restaurants and pubs.
Rear End Loader Skips are the largest waste disposal bins we provid, for businesses producing high volumes of compactable waste.
How does commercial waste disposal work?
Our commercial waste disposal will help your business to identify your specific waste storage and disposal needs, whilst ensuring that you’re doing everything you can to prevent, reuse, recycle, or recover waste where possible.
Our in-house assessment will help you create a waste disposal strategy that gives you the right equipment to sort and store your waste, in addition to organising collections that work in tandem with your business.
What is a waste carrier licence, and do businesses need one?
Waste carrier licenses are required by businesses who transport, buy, sell or dispose of waste. Businesses who broker the sale, purchase or disposal of waste must also have a waste carrier license. Registration is free for businesses who only transport waste that they produce themselves.
It’s your responsibility as business owner to ensure that whoever disposes of your waste has the correct waste carrier licence to do so.
Yorwaste is a fully licensed waste carrier who, in partnership with our major shareholder North Yorkshire County Council, is the main supplier of waste to the Allerton Waste Recovery Park.
