Please note business rates do not cover the removal of waste from commercial premises.  It is the responsibility of the business to ensure that they comply with the Environmental Protection Act 1990. A business must have in place a commercial waste collection agreement with a registered waste carrier, who ensures that the waste they dispose of is documented.
