Business waste and recycling

Information about business waste and recycling.

According to the government's overview on managing business and commercial waste, business and commercial waste is "any waste that comes from a commercial activity is business waste. If you use part of your home to run your business then any waste from that part is business waste".

Business waste also includes any waste that comes from:

  • construction
  • demolition
  • industry
  • agriculture

Business and commercial waste must be taken to a waste transfer station where it will be weighed and a charge made for its disposal.

Further advice and guidance on business and commercial waste can be found on the Surrey County Council website (external link).
