Advice for businesses:
You cannot dispose of business waste at recycling and household waste sites. You can at the Whetstone Waste Transfer Station or through a licensed waste collection company. Find out where you can take business or commercial waste
Take to your local recycling and household waste site. At most recycling and household waste sites, where we have capacity, we collect hard plastics separately with a view to recycling them where there is a sustainable outlet. Where sustainable outlets are not available to the Council, the material may be sent to landfill or energy recovery.
Contact your district council to see if they collect this as part of their bulky waste collection service
