Liverpool waste disposal

It is not just the big firms in the city’s commercial district who feel pressure to adhere to corporate social responsibility (CSR) policies for sustainability. Businesses from Croxteth to Birkenhead and Stanley Park must do their bit for the environment. This includes what happens with your waste disposal in Liverpool.

Many such objectives can be achieved through savvy recycling. At Business Waste we have the knowledge and workforce to ensure your Liverpool waste disposal is as environmentally friendly as possible. We aim to divert as much rubbish away from landfill and incineration for recycling instead.

Our licensed waste carriers remove your bins, bags, and containers and transport to one of various local Liverpool waste disposal sites. Here your waste will be disposed of safely and legally, following any relevant regulations – especially when disposing of the likes of hazardous, chemical, and clinical waste.

Methods of waste disposal in Liverpool vary from composting and anaerobic digestion to energy from waste, depending on the type.

  • What regulations and guidelines are in place for commercial waste management in Liverpool?

    Under the Environmental Protection Act 1990, all businesses in Liverpool have a duty of care to organise responsible commercial waste collection and disposal. This includes recycling and reusing as much as possible and using licensed waste carriers to remove trade waste in Liverpool. The same regulations and guidelines apply for waste management in Liverpool as in the rest of the UK.

    Liverpool City Council also states that businesses must sign a trade refuse agreement with a carrier legally authorised to remove waste and pay the charges. Their guidelines also advise holding onto a copy of all documentation for two years. Prosecutions may occur if full records aren’t presented about the disposal of commercial waste.

    Any commercial waste in Liverpool that’s disposed of illegally, even by the carrier, will mean the company faces legal proceedings. Liverpool City Council can issue a £300 fixed penalty charge or take action via the Magistrates’ Court. Here the maximum fine is £5,000 if found guilty.

  • How can businesses in Liverpool reduce waste?

    Reducing commercial waste in Liverpool is important to minimise pollution and help the local environment. For businesses, it also reduces your waste disposal costs, as you’ll need fewer collections. There are various ways Liverpool businesses can reduce the amount of trade waste produced:

    • Build a waste management plan tailored to your business. It should detail the types and amount of waste you produce, how it will be stored, and when it’s collected. This can highlight areas to focus on reducing your waste generation.
    • Separate recyclable rubbish from other waste by using different bins in appropriate sizes. Place these near the point of production to ensure as much as possible is reused.
    • Find ways to reuse materials and waste rather than sending them for disposal. If you can’t use them then consider donating to local Liverpool charities.
    • Get rid of single-use plastics like disposable cups and from your business to encourage reuse and reduce such waste.
    • Provide training for your staff about how to reduce waste and its importance. Outline the benefits to the business, environment, and the impact this has on their lives too.
  • Are there any recycling and sustainability initiatives or programs in Liverpool?

    Recycling and sustainability are important for the city of Liverpool. Liverpool City Council (LCC) aims for the city to be a Net Zero Carbon city by 2030. There are various programs and initiatives in place to help and encourage organisations all over Liverpool to improve their recycling and sustainability efforts. These include:

    • Liverpool BID and WRAP – Liverpool Business Improvement Districts (BID) have partnered with WRAP (Waste and Resources Action Program) to employ a Business Support Advisor to educate and inform businesses and help them to test the new Business of Recycling assets.
    • Transport initiatives – LCC installed 6km of segregated cycle lanes and a fleet of electric and hydrogen-powered buses. They’re also developing clean air and active travel strategies.
    • Solar Together – Liverpool City Region is providing a scheme that offers high-quality solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and battery storage. This is through a group-buying scheme that connects households to provide a competitive price and supports and informs participants in the scheme at each stage.
  • What options are available for hazardous waste disposal in Liverpool?

    Correct storage, removal, and disposal of all types and amounts of hazardous waste are available anywhere in Liverpool with Business Waste. This includes the safe, legal, and responsible collection and disposal of many types of hazardous waste like clinical waste, chemical waste, and WEEE waste. Licensed waste carriers will remove all such waste.

    To ensure the safe storage of hazardous waste on your premises before its removal we provide a range of free bins and containers. This includes barrels and drums for the likes of oil waste, IBC containers, and more. Bins are delivered for free, you only pay for collection. For further peace of mind, you receive a free duty of care certificate too.

  • How can businesses in Liverpool improve their recycling rates?

    Liverpool businesses can improve their recycling rates in various ways. This benefits the environment, helps reduce how much waste goes to landfill, and lowers commercial waste disposal costs as you’ll pay less landfill tax by recycling more. Businesses in Liverpool can improve recycling rates by:

    • Having an onsite recycling program with bins for each type of recyclable rubbish the organisation produces, such as ones for paper, plastic, cardboard, glass, and dry mixed recycling.
    • Training employees about the importance of recycling within your business, what materials must be recycled, and how it affects both your company’s waste disposal costs and the local Liverpool environment.
    • Using a waste management company that knows the Liverpool area to arrange cost-effective and efficient local commercial waste collections and recycling.
    • Auditing your waste management processes regularly to identify challenges and opportunities. This includes your waste production, storage, and disposal methods.
    • Working with suppliers and other organisations that only use recyclable materials for their packaging and products where possible, to ensure as much as possible can be reused.
  • What are the consequences of non-compliance with waste management regulations in Liverpool?

    Non-compliance with waste management regulations by businesses in Liverpool could result in penalties, fines, and legal action. If your commercial waste is disposed of illegally – even by your carrier – your organisation will face legal proceedings. This is a breach of the duty of care under section 34 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

    Liverpool City Council can issue a £300 fixed penalty charge. They can also take action via the Magistrates’ Court and the maximum fine your business could face is £5,000 if found guilty. This may also damage your reputation, leading to a loss of customers and business. Ensure compliance by always using licensed waste carriers.
