Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland


All businesses produce some waste. This section covers what the regulations require from businesses to manage their waste with as little impact on the environment as possible.

We also offer good practice advice on how to reduce, reuse and recycle your business waste.


The environmental regulators SEPA and the NIEA, are committed to supporting everyone they regulate during the COVID-19 public health emergency, while maintaining protection of the environment. It is recognised that there may be disruption to the waste management services during this time, and so temporary COVID-19 Regulatory Position Statements to help the waste sector during this period have been produced.
