First the Legal Bit

Every business, no matter how small, has a duty of care to dispose of waste through a licensed waste carrier such as Selby District Council and Enterprise.  We will provide you with all the necessary legal documentation to ensure that you're complying with the law and get your waste problems SORTED!

Duty of Care legislation includes five main things businesses need to ensure they do.

  1. Store your waste safely and securely
  2. Check that the person removing your waste is legally authorised to do so
  3. Complete a written description of the waste and sign a transfer note for it
  4. Be legally authorised to accept waste if receiving waste from someone else
  5. Register with the Environment Agency as a waste carrier If transporting waste

Selby Business Waste Handbook

The Business Waste Handbook, created by Selby District Council in partnership with Leeds City Council, provides specific information and tips for offices and businesses involved in catering, construction, retail, leisure and tourism, printing and manufacturing.

The handbook gives advice on reducing the amount of waste created, reusing materials and recycling as much as possible, as well as waste audits and a guide to legislation. There is also a list of organisations which can provide further information, guidance and funding to help businesses make changes.

Minimise Waste and Maximise Profit

Every company produces waste and a lot of what is produced is avoidable. Excess packaging, valuable resources and reusable items all end up in landfill sites. With UK companies generate 70% of the UK's waste every business needs to minimise the waste they produce every day.

The Government are also taking steps to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill by increasing landfill tax, by £8 per tonne each year until 2013.  In 2012 landfill tax alone is £64 per tonne so reducing your waste can also save you money.

Waste disposal is fast becoming one of the biggest environmental issues that businesses face. Businesses have an important role to play in protecting and improving the environment and we can help you to do just that.

Further information about commercial waste is available in our Frequently Asked Questions section.
