I moved waste companies a couple of times before contracting with Business Waste a few years ago. My reason for each previous move was poor customer service. Business Waste have been excellent throughout. Any small issue has been dealt with quickly and efficiently. Communicating is easy, responses fast and proactive, billing clear and transparent. Highly recommended.

What are the regulations and guidelines for commercial waste management in Sheffield?
UK regulations and guidelines apply when managing commercial waste in Sheffield. The Environmental Protection Act 1990 enlists a duty of care on all businesses to ensure their waste is stored, moved, and disposed of responsibly. Sheffield City Council also states that commercial outlets and businesses must:
- Have a legal contract with a registered waste company
- Provide evidence of how they legally dispose of their waste
Businesses in Sheffield must have a waste transfer note for any load removed from their site or a waste contract from a waste company for regular collections. Any organisation that removes its own commercial waste needs a receipt from a waste and recycling site. Where companies in Sheffield send their waste must also be licensed by the Environment Agency to accept it.
How can businesses in Sheffield reduce waste?
Businesses in Sheffield can reduce the amount of waste their organisations produce at the source. This helps the environment and reduces waste disposal costs for the company. A few ways Sheffield businesses can reduce waste is to:

- Introduce a recycling program to your business in Sheffield with bins for every different recyclable material you produce, such as glass and paper.
- Reuse as much of the material waste you create as possible rather than throwing them out.
- Avoid using single-use items such as disposable coffee cups at your workplace. Provide employees with reusable mugs or water bottles.
- Train staff about the importance of waste management, recycling, and reducing commercial waste. Outline ways in their roles they can help to minimise the waste produced.
