{slider=Do I have to pay for the collection of waste from my holiday cottage?}

If your holiday cottage/property is business rated, it means that as the owner you have a "Duty of Care" to ensure your waste is managed correctly. The payment of business rates does not cover the cost involved in managing the waste that leaves a non-domestic property.

Our rates are competitive within the service area and we are very proud or our positive customer feedback and recommendations for our Commercial Waste service. To find out more about our service or discuss the options available to your business, please submit an Enquiry Form call 01653 600666 and ask to speak to our Commercial Waste Officer.

After arranging a contract for the service, we will issue an invoice. Please note there is no VAT on commercial waste collections and there is currently no charge for kerbside recycling. Payments can be made on an annual basis or via monthly direct debit at no extra cost. Payment of your invoice may be made online. Please ensure you have a copy of your invoice to hand before making payment.

You have a legal obligation to demonstrate you are adhering to legislation by ensuring your waste is managed securely from storage to disposal via an agreement with an authorised carrier such as the Council. For further information regarding your Duty of Care please visit the Environment Agency webpage.

{slider=Information and guidance}

Information and guidance on the Duty of Care with regard to your waste, Standard Industry Classification Codes, the Waste Hierarchy and more information and advice for Business and Community groups.

Duty of Care

If you have waste you have a legal 'Duty of Care', which applies to everyone involved in handling the waste including the person/business who produces it, to the person who finally disposes of or recovers it.

If you ask the Council to collect your waste we will ask you to sign a Commercial Waste Agreement and Waste Description/Transfer Note. This ensures that you have abided by your "Duty of Care" and that you have:

  • Checked that we can take your waste
  • Ensured the waste is disposed of at a licensed site
  • Provided us with a transfer note - this must include a description of the waste and be signed by both of you. Keep copies of your transfer notes for a minimum of two years.
  • Ensured that, from 28 September 2011, a declaration is signed on the transfer note to indicate that the waste management hierarchy of options has been applied

For more details and information about the Duty of Care, please visit The Environment Agency website - Frequently Asked Questions.

SIC Code

From 28 September 2011, you must ensure you include the SIC Code on your Waste Transfer Note. This is the Standard Industry Classification Code for your industry/business.

SIC codes for your industry/business may be found on Office of National Statistics website.

Once you have identified your SIC 2007 Code, please email Commercial Waste with the information, so we can update our records. This will ensure that the Code is included on all future Contracts/Waste Transfer Notes.

Waste Hierarchy

Article 4 of the revised EU Waste Framework Directive sets out 5 steps for dealing with waste ranked according to environmental impact. Prevention, which offers the best outcomes for the environment, is at the top of the priority order, followed by preparing for re-use, recycling, other recovery and disposal, in descending order of environmental preference.

For more detailed information and advice, please visit GOV.UK's website, where you may also download a Guidance document.

Businesses and Community Groups

Wrap offers UK businesses free, independent, confidential advice and support on practical ways to increase profits, minimise waste and reduce environmental impact. For more information, please use the link.

Skip services

In North Yorkshire there are no commercial waste skip services provided by either County, district or borough councils.

Commercial waste disposal sites

North Yorkshire County Council accepts certain types of commercial waste at their household waste recycling centres. For more information on the types of waste accepted and charges, please visit the North Yorkshire County Council website.

Hazardous waste collection https://www.ryedale.gov.uk/business/commercial-waste/hazardous-waste-collection.html https://www.ryedale.gov.uk/business/commercial-waste/hazardous-waste-collection.html Hazardous waste contains substances or properties that might harm people or the environment. That doesn't always mean it is toxic.

 

{slider=What is hazardous waste?}

Hazardous wastes include:

  • Oil filters
  • Antifreeze
  • Brake fluid
  • Lubricating oil
  • Mixed fuels
  • Lead acid batteries
  • Parts washing fluids
  • Contaminated rags and granules
  • Fluorescent tubes
  • Printing wastes
  • Paint
  • Spent oils
  • Solvent wastes, including contaminated packaging and containers
  • Certain electrical goods, including fridges and freezers from commercial premises
  • Cathode ray tube screens (TVs & computer monitors)
  • Other waste materials that were previously consigned as 'Special Waste'

 

{/slider}

{slider=How do I dispose of hazardous waste from my business?}

All businesses must demonstrate that hazardous wastes are being disposed of correctly by ensuring that measures are in place to properly segregate, handle and store such wastes. It is illegal to mix different types of hazardous waste materials or mix /disperse them with non-hazardous (general) waste that goes to landfill.

The Duty of Care (ie correct handling procedure for waste) is being placed more heavily on businesses, as waste producers. The Environment Agency has stated that the consequences for businesses not complying with the new Hazardous Waste Regulations are likely to be significant fines and damage to a company's reputation.

If your business produces hazardous waste (such as the materials listed above) you will need to register each of your business's operational premises with the Environment Agency. After completing correct documentation, and submitting a fee, you will be provided with a unique 'Premises Code' for each site. You must use this number whenever you want hazardous waste removed from your premises.

You may "Register as a hazwaste producer" by visiting GOV.UK.

 

{/slider}

{slider=Does Ryedale District Council collect hazardous waste?}

We cannot collect hazardous waste separately, or co-mingled with general household or commercial waste. Unless you are registered you will be unable to have hazardous wastes collected from your sites. Companies offering collections of hazardous waste can be found under the Waste Disposal Services section in your local Yellow Pages.

You must ensure that the company you choose to remove your hazardous waste is properly licensed (with the Environment Agency). It is an offence to pass waste on to a company not fully approved by the Environment Agency.

If you think you have hazardous waste, but are not sure, contact the Environment Agency for advice tel: 08708 506506.

Visit North Yorkshire County Council's website for information on how to dispose of hazardous household waste.
