When it comes to commercial waste disposal, it’s important to know what counts and what doesn’t as well as realising there are necessary responsibilities to undertake when disposing of commercial waste.
What is commercial business waste?
Let’s get down to the nitty gritty first. To remove commercial waste, you want to ensure that your waste falls under this bracket! The most common definition is as follows:
Commercial waste is any waste that comes from commercial activity. If you use part of your home to run your business then any waste from that part is included as commercial waste!
What are your responsibilities when it comes to commercial waste disposal?
Your responsibilities include:
- Waste must be kept to a minimum by doing everything possible to ensure things are recycled or reused
- A waste transfer note is completed when the waste leaves your premises
- Ensure you use a registered waste carrier
- Ensure the waste carrier doesn’t dispose of your waste illegally
If you’re still a little unsure, here are a few examples of when to use commercial waste disposal.
Did you know that the construction industry is the UK’s largest user of natural resources and produces a huge amount of waste? Roughly, 25 million tonnes of construction waste is disposed to landfill each year! That’s why there are important initiatives in place that look to reduce, reuse and recycle before reaching the point of disposal.
If you’re a kitchen fitter, a builder or a disabled bathrooms installer, then you would also be able to utilise a service such as commercial waste disposal. These sorts of jobs can produce a large amount of waste from within the home and you need to ensure you’re removing the waste in a responsible way! Renovation may also be carried out on the scale of large commercial projects in massive buildings, such as the installation of hospital vinyl flooring. For big and tricky jobs like these, you will likely need the assistance a commercial waste disposal contractor!
When a demolition takes place, there is certainly going to be a lot of commercial waste to get rid of! That’s why it’s important to make sure everything that can be recycled is done as such to ensure we are not wasting valuable resources.
