To have your waste removed by us, you have to sign up to a contract with us for at least 13 weeks, after that you can cancel your contract by giving us 4-weeks notice. We will not charge you for providing a container at the beginning of the contract.

All contracts are for a minimum of 13 weeks, with a four week minimum cancellation period. We will replace damaged bins free of charge throughout the hire contract providing that no negligence on behalf of the hirer, has contributed to the damage.

Once a change to service has been processed it will generate a new contract and therefore is subject to the standard terms and conditions shown on your Trade Waste Agreement, including Section 11 (3 months minimum service period). Any further changes made before the minimum service period has ended will be subject to an administration fee of £50.

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. Using household waste collection services for waste generated by trade is illegal. Failing to have a trade waste agreement with any waste disposal provider is illegal and you can be fined up to £5000. You can report a business that you suspect is failing to meet its waste disposal duties, in confidence, to the Neighbourhood Enforcement Service on 01642 528439 or email civic.enforcement@stockton.gov.uk.
