Your business must, as a matter of record, keep a copy of the paperwork for two years and have it available for inspection if requested.
Various other private contractors can also offer a business refuse collection and contact numbers can be found in yellow pages under Waste Disposal or on the internet.
Before entering into a contract for the collection of business waste, businesses have a duty to make sure that the contractor is registered as a ‘waste carrier’ by the Environment Agency and are fully compliant under the Duty of Care section of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 legislation.
