Commercial waste and recycling

The Forest of Dean District Council only operates a domestic refuse and recycling service and does not collect or dispose of any commercial waste.

Commercial (trade) waste is the responsibility of the individual to dispose of.  Commercial waste applies to any business whether it is run from a business premises or from your home.

Please make sure authorised and legitimate person(s) collect and dispose of the waste correctly. Any spillage occurred during collection is the responsibility of the chosen contractor and the individual.

Commercial waste cannot be disposed of at the Household Recycling Centre (HRC), as part of the domestic kerbside collections or at the recycling banks.

All materials deposited at the HRC will be monitored to ensure that businesses and traders are not using these sites.
