If you run a business, regardless of size, you are legally responsible for ensuring that the waste you create is collected and disposed of correctly.
This is called your 'Duty of Care'. To comply with your legal obligations you must ensure that:
Failure to comply with your legal obligations can result in a fine or even court appearance
Nationally the cost of collecting business waste is not included in the Business Rates. As a business you need to consider the best option for your needs. This could be a private contractor who is a licensed waste carrier, or the Council provides a service.
Our prices are competitive compared with private contractors. Our service is run on a not-for-profit basis and any revenue generated is put back into Hillingdon waste services.
As part of the council service you are provided with the correct documents to comply with your legal duties. In addition you are meeting the new Pre Treatment Regulations for commercial waste because your waste is collected as part of the municipal waste stream. We have a clear policy on our pricing:
The service and charge made is based on the amount of waste collected. Our smallest collection is offered is one refuse sack each week. If you have a large amount of waste you should use a proper sized bin. There are a number of different sizes of bin to choose from depending on the needs of your business. These are shown below:
The preferred payment method is direct debit made quarterly in advance.
Customers having more than four 1,100 eurobins collected at the same time are eligible for a price reduction.

If you choose the council service you will be sent the contract document to complete. Once the completed documents have been received you should be issued with a bin (if you need one) the following Wednesday. You will have your collection day confirmed.
You will be told what day collections take place in you area. Leave your bags or bins ready for collection from 6am. Leave the bags or bins ready from 530pm the tonight before if your business does not start early.
The council does not provide a bin cleaning service.
If you wish to cancel your service you must do this in writing at least one month before your next quarterly payment is due.
