Pre-paid sacks for commercial waste

Commercial waste is governed by various legislation, including the Environmental Protection Act 1990, the Packaging and Waste Regulations 1997, the Animal By-Products Regulations 2005, Hazardous Waste Regulations 2005 and Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment 2007.

In order to help commercial premises comply with this legislation Birmingham City Council has a dedicated Commercial Waste section trained to deal with all aspects of business waste.

For the majority of small businesses a pre-paid sack offers the most effective and flexible solution for disposing of waste. The commercial refuse sacks are clear, are purchased in advance (minimum quantity 50) and are used as and when required. In the City Centre sacks can be collected on a daily basis, elsewhere in the city there is a weekly collection.

The pre-paid sacks allow the customer to put out as many trade refuse sacks as required until their allocation has been used up.
