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, call 01653 600666 and ask to speak to our Commercial Waste Officer.

If you would like us to collect your commercial waste, we will ask you to sign an annual contract. You may pay the annual contract in full or take advantage of a monthly direct debit facility. Payment of your invoice may be made online. Please ensure you have a copy of your invoice to hand before making payment.

Our charges include the hire of the bin, collection of the waste and North Yorkshire County Council's waste disposal costs. All private waste management companies and district councils in the County have to pay disposal costs and have no option but to pass onto the producer of the waste.

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, 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.

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.
