Duty of Care
Duty of Care applies to recyclable waste as well as general waste. As a business, you are required by law to ensure that the waste you produce is correctly transported and disposed of in line with Duty of Care legislation. You must have completed a Waste Transfer Note, which must be signed by yourselves and your waste carrier. We will provide you with the controlled waste transfer notice.
The Pre-Treatment Regulations 2007 highlights that all waste created by the commercial and trade industry must be sorted to filter out items that can be recycled, cutting down on the amount of waste sent to landfill. We can help you ensure that you comply with these regulations. For further information, see the Duty of Care regulations which give environmental guidance for businesses. Please contact us to discuss your requirements or book a free waste audit.
