Fight Waste Crime
Did you know that the Waste Duty of Care is a crucial component of your waste collection regime? There is a responsibility on you for how your business waste is handled. The Duty of Care takes effect from the moment you produce the waste, and it continues right up to the moment that you hand it over to a properly licensed waste management company for removal and disposal. Over half of businesses in the UK (56%) are not currently complying with the law – so find out how you can help to fight waste crime.

What SME’s Can Do To Fight Waste Crime

Ignorance of the Duty of Care requirements is no excuse, so the most important thing you can do is educate yourself on what is required of you with regards to waste. Then, find and choose a waste management company that is fully licensed. If you develop a relationship with a licensed waste collection provider, you can ensure that from the point of waste production to the point of disposal, both parties are properly doing their part to make sure that all of the rules and regulations are being followed thoroughly and all of the required paperwork is in order.

Waste Duty of Care

The Waste Duty of Care include:

  • Classifying waste properly
  • Formally registering your business premises, in some cases
  • Applying for suitable permits
  • Storing your waste correctly
  • Ensuring your waste is moved legally
  • Ensuring the company to whom you hand your waste has a license
