Resource, Efficiency and Recycling

Recycle symbol

Are you throwing away profit? The cost of waste affects every business regardless of its size. UK businesses produce 75 million tonnes of waste each year, over half of which is sent to landfill. With increasing landfill costs businesses need to rethink their waste disposal options

There are a number of organisations who can help local businesses to become more resource efficient, reducing the amount of waste produced and saving money. Dudley Council does not offer a trade waste recycling service, however, there are local companies who can offer recycling services for items ranging from office waste to construction or agricultural waste.

Commercial Trade Sacks

These are available to customers who do not produce large amounts of waste or are unable to accommodate a waste container. For these customers we are able to offer a Trade Sack collection service.

Duty of Care (Business)

All business in the UK must comply with Section 34 the Duty of Care provision of the Environmental Protection Act 1990. The act requires businesses to take measures to prevent unauthorised deposit, treatment and disposal of waste.
