Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland

Reduce, reuse and recycle your business waste

With the cost of goods and materials rising, using resources efficiently and reducing your business' waste makes good financial sense. It's also better for the environment.

The cost of sending waste to landfill is increasing, and so are the restrictions on what you can send. You can face penalties if you do not handle waste appropriately or have the right paperwork before it leaves your premises.

You can save money and make your business more efficient by focusing on how you reduce, reuse, recycle or recover your business waste, and how you deal with the waste that remains.

This guide explains your main options for dealing with your business waste and identifies some of the key areas you could focus on.
