Registration as a Waste Carrier

If you transport controlled waste within the UK in the course of your business, you must register as a waste carrier.  Further details are available on the SEPA - Waste Carriers and Brokers website.

Commercial Waste - Business Resources and Support

The new Zero Waste Regulations require all businesses operating in Scotland to present key recyclables, specifically paper and card, glass, metals, and plastics for recycling.  For businesses working in food retail, food production, or preparation, a separate food waste collection will also be required. Changing the way businesses manage their waste holds money-saving potential, particularly by taking simple steps to become more resource efficient.
