The pricing for collecting Commercial Waste is done on a quotation basis. In the first instance, an Officer would attend to price and set up the collection as necessary. However Torridge District Council would not be as competitive as other main contractors who are able to specialise in the bulk collection of commercial waste.
Businesses have a legal Duty of Care to make sure that their waste is suitably contained, stored safely and securely without causing pollution to members of the public or the environment. They will need to arrange and pay for their own waste and recycling to be collected and disposed of.
Most individual businesses use a private licensed waste management company to collect and dispose of their waste. Larger waste disposal companies will collect from small businesses through to larger manufacturers, collecting from small bags of refuse to wheeled bins and skips of various sizes. They will also collect and dispose of special waste, chemicals, clinical waste and other hazardous materials. Any spillage caused whilst removing any waste will be the responsibility of the contractor.
For skip hire and waste management companies please look in your yellow pages telephone directory under skip hire.
Skip licences can be obtained by contacting Devon County Council on Tel: 01805 622136.
