Business waste disposal

Ealing Council is a licensed waste carrier. We can take the responsibility of getting rid of your waste, so let us take care of your business waste management by collecting and disposing of your waste in the correct way.   

There are other business waste collection companies available, but you must make sure they are licensed to collect your waste. You can find helpful information on the disposal of business waste on the GOV.UK commercial waste pages  

All businesses have a legal duty of care to dispose of trade waste. 

Your business rates do not include the collection of your business waste.

Request a business waste service 


The amount you will pay depnds on the volume of waste your business produces and the container types (bins or sacks) you need. One of our business waste executives will quote you for the cost of your business waste collections. You can set up a monthly or quarterly direct debit, or you can choose to pay the full amount up front. The payment includes all costs and there will never be any surprise, such as additional fees for bin rental, duty of care charges, which other waste carriers may charge (please check all quotes carefully for a fair comparison).

Waste bins

If you want to use waste bins, we may need to visit to see which bin is suitable and to check the access. We will then be able to give you a quote for your business waste collections. You will get a contract and a waste transfer note, which you will need to sign. Once we have received your forms, we aim to get your bins delivered to you within five working days. 

Bins provided by the council remain our property. If the bins are lost or damaged, you will need to pay for a repair or replacement.

Waste sacks

If bins are not right for your business, we can offer a sack collection. This service is operated on a 'pay as you go' basis.
