Commercial Waste Recycling

We don't collect or recycle commercial waste. Commercial waste is recycled by private operators details of which can be found in local telephone and business directories.

Commercial waste may be recyclable, although under the 'Controlled Waste Regulations' it should not be recycled using the domestic recycling facilities such as recycle points or kerbside collections. The domestic recycling services provided in the district are unable to cope with the very large quantities of commercial waste produced.
