What you need to know...

Businesses have a legal duty to store, transport and safely dispose of the waste they generate (Environmental Protection Act 1990).

We can help our customers to comply with their legal duty of care, assisting with the completion of records that you are required by law to maintain.

Hold on to your waste transfer documents

  • It is a statutory requirement that you document what you do with your waste and keep any waste transfer notes you receive for the disposal of your waste.
  • Waste transfer notes must be retained for two years. You have a legal duty to make these records available for inspection.

More information and guidance on your duty of care is available from the Environment Agency.


Businesses can recycle the same items as Lambeth households, to find out more see our guide to recycling to find out what you can recycle

Next Steps

Once you have set up your collection we will invoice you every month - this can be paid online.
