The council's legal duties regarding collecting waste from a business

The council has a duty to arrange for the collection of waste if requested to do so by a business but, rather than directly supplying this service, it will be procured from Hills Waste Solutions from 1 April 2018.

We can arrange for the collection of commercial waste by our contractor, if requested by a business to do so, and will add on the council's  reasonable costs of making these arrangements.
