Local waste waste collection companies such as WasteManaged provide commercial waste management services for local businesses. You can contact the council to enquire about their services or choose to use a private waste management provider.
In Sheffield, commercial waste is collected on a scheduled basis. You will need to arrange for regular collections based on your business’s waste generation patterns. You may also need to pay a fee for the collection service.
Sheffield has a “zero waste” target by 2034, which means that businesses in the city have a responsibility to dispose of their waste in an environmentally responsible manner (see here). This includes reducing waste generation, recycling where possible, and disposing of any remaining waste in a responsible manner.
The council provides guidance on waste segregation and disposal for businesses in Sheffield. You should ensure that your business is following the guidelines to avoid any fines or penalties.
Sheffield operates a Trade Waste Recycling Centre, which accepts various types of commercial waste, including mixed recyclables, cardboard, wood, metals, and plastics. You can take your waste to the centre for disposal or arrange for collection by a waste management provider.
By following the guidelines and regulations set out by Sheffield City Council, you can ensure that your business is disposing of its waste responsibly and contributing to the city’s goal of becoming a zero-waste city.
