Duty of care

Check your business is compliant and educate employees on their responsibilities.

Your duty of care means you have to:

  1. Keep your waste from being deposited, treated or disposed of in an unauthorised or harmful way
  2. Make sure your waste is only ever transferred to an authorised person or company
  3. Complete a waste transfer note and keep hold of it for two years

If your waste is collected from a public space, such as a pavement or high street, your council might have specific rules for how and when you need to put it out (or present it). Double check your council’s rules before putting your waste out.

What's included?

  1. A two-page guide
  2. A set of two posters
  3. A video
