Illegal disposal of business waste​

​It is a strict offence under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 to fly-tip on private or public land.​

The Council is developing environmental resources to combat this anti-social behaviour and will prosecute offenders where admissible evidence is available subject to public interest.

Business owners have a strict duty to make professional arrangements for the disposal of trade waste according to the Duty of Care processes of the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

When contracting a company to remove trade waste, businesses must ensure they have a waste carriers licence. They must also supply a Duty of Care Transfer.​
