There are lots of options available to dispose of waste from a business. Waste from a business, sometimes known as commercial waste or trade waste, cannot be disposed of in household waste bins or street litter bins. If you own a business, you must make your own arrangements for the disposal of your business waste. Recycling centres Most of Staffordshire County Council’s recycling centres accept business waste from small traders. For more information on trade waste disposal at recycling centres, please visit Staffordshire County Council's Trade Waste Disposal Scheme webpage. Privately-operated commercial recycling centres are also available. If you choose to use a privately operated disposal site, please check the site is licenced with the Environment Agency (EA).
