Duty of Care

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 gives environmental guidance for businesses. Please contact us to discuss your waste requirements or book a free waste audit.

FAQs:

Waste produced by businesses is governed by a Duty of Care and businesses are required by law to ensure that it's correctly transported and disposed of in line with the legislation.

Your commercial waste is taken for landfill.

Waste produced by businesses is classed as Controlled Waste. All businesses that produce, store, transport, and dispose of Controlled Waste are required to comply with a Duty of Care under the Environmental Protection Act 1990. Generally this involves taking out a contract or agreement with a Registered Waste Carrier.

No, we don't tie our customers into a contract for our service , but you may benefit from reduced charges if you agree to stay with us for a period of time.

There are no hidden costs – the price quoted is the price you pay. We don't charge separately for the Duty of Care notice, bin rental, admin or health & safety charges. VAT is not charged on your waste collection.

There are certain controlled waste products we do not collect: gas bottles, tyres, builder's waste, rubble, plaster board, asbestos, concrete and similar waste. Please contact us to discuss the disposal of these items.

No, as long as the bin can be moved by our operatives and lifted by the collection vehicle.

If you move within the Mid Devon area we will transfer your service to the new address and move your bin(s).
