Duty of Care

All businesses have a Duty of Care under The Environmental Protection Act 1990 to ensure that they take all reasonable steps to keep their waste safe. Waste must be stored safely and securely and must not cause pollution to people or the environment. The waste must be packaged in suitable containers so it cannot fall out, blow away or escape from the receptacle.

Businesses must also ensure that the person removing the waste is either a Local Authority or a licensed waste collection company and must be able to provide evidence by which they legally dispose of your waste. There must be a written description of your waste in the form of a Waste Transfer Note and you must retain this for a period of two years.
