Waste service staff strike

Some of our frontline waste service workers and street cleansers will be on strike from 18 September to 1 October due to a national pay dispute. We are doing everything we can to maintain services during the strike and apologise in advance for the disruption the strike will cause.

Commercial waste

Any waste that comes from business activity is commercial waste.

If you are opening a business, you must register with a waste carrier. You must use special trade recycling or waste sacks or bins. 

You should never use household sacks or bins to get rid of commercial waste. This is illegal and could result in you being issued with a penalty.

We offer affordable commercial waste services to businesses in the borough.
