Apply for the disposal of business waste materials

All businesses and charitable organisations produce waste and have a legal responsibility to ensure that all waste is produced, stored, transported and disposed of without harming the environment. This is called the Duty of Care. When disposing of Commercial Waste you must ensure it is collected by a licenced Waste Carrier and obtain a Waste Transfer Note which you keep for a minimum of two years. You must be able to produce these notes on demand to Swindon Borough Council on request, failure to do so can result in a fine or prosecution.  

Swindon Borough Council offers a safe, reliable service to help you meet your Duty of Care obligations. As your chosen licensed commercial waste carrier we will ensure your legal compliance and inform you of any changes in legislation.

If you would like to request a commercial waste collection or bulky removal quotation; or you have an enquiry regarding the commercial waste service, please use the enquiry form below. You will be asked to create a My Account before you can complete the form.
