Join the council’s Commercial Waste Collection scheme

Register your interest and we will arrange to come and see you to assess your needs. Alternatively email us at: commercialwaste@burnley.gov.uk or call 01282 477320.

Why?

Your business must comply with the law.
Every business has a legal duty of care to ensure that any waste it produces or handles is stored, transported, treated, reprocessed and disposed of legally and safely.

If you give your waste to anyone else you must be sure they are authorised to take it. The council is an authorised waste collection service and will ensure that you stay within the law by providing your business with waste transfer notes.

How much does it cost?

Our costs are amongst the lowest in the UK because you don’t pay VAT. It costs from as little as £20 per month for collection and disposal.
