Managing your waste
Every business, organisation and charity have a duty of care, by law, to ensure their waste and recycling is processed correctly.
Environmental legislation changes regularly, and it is important to make sure you stay within the law. We can help by providing bespoke, cost effective and efficient services for businesses to ensure you are handling and processing of waste and recycling legally.
By working with our customers, we can ensure you comply with regulations whilst doing your bit for the environment by recycling as much as possible.
As a business, organisation or charity, it is important to know what you can and can't do with your waste to comply with regulations. Here are a few handy tips to keep in mind:
Do use a registered waste management company, with a waste carriers' licence, such as Powys Commercial Recycling, to legally process your waste and recycling.
Do always ask to see the waste carrier's licence before signing up to a contract. You can also contact Natural Resources Wales to check that your chosen waste management company is registered to remove and process commercial waste and recycling.
Do always get a waste transfer note for your waste and recycling and keep safe for a minimum of two years.
Don't let anyone take your rubbish and recycling away unless you have checked that they are a registered waste carrier, and your waste is being taken to a site licensed to accept commercial waste - you will face a fine.
Don't use any of the Household Waste and Recycling Centres or Community Recycling Sites without a commercial recycling permit.
Don't store your waste and recycling on public land or the highway without the permission of Powys County Council.
Don't burn any of your waste and recycling without a permit from Natural Resources Wales.
