When dealing with your own business waste you must:

  • store your waste safely and securely to ensure that it doesn't escape from your control and pollute or harm the environment.
  • make sure that anybody who disposes of the waste for you is authorised to take it and can transport, recycle or dispose of it safely.
  • make sure you have a written description of the waste and a transfer note (completed and signed by both parties) if you get someone else to dispose of your waste.

Further information on the legal obligations of a business to correctly dispose of their waste can be found at GOV.UK.
