Penalties for failing to manage your trade waste

All businesses that generate any waste as a result of trade have a moral and legal duty to dispose of this rubbish in a responsible way. The use of household waste collection services to dispose of waste generated from businesses is illegal. Laws and regulations are available to local authorities, who proactively investigate and prosecute business owners where evidence of this exists.

The Environmental Protection Act makes it illegal to dispose of waste in this way, or failing to have a trade waste agreement in place with any waste disposal provider. Penalties include an on the spot fine of £75.00 or if dealt with via the Magistrate Court, fines of up to £5000 can be imposed.

You can report a business that you suspect is failing to meet its waste disposal duties to the Neighbourhood Enforcement Service on 01642 528439 or via email at Enforcement.Admin@stockton.gov.uk, in confidence.
