Anyone who gets paid for their services is a business, even if they're just a sole trader. Business waste can come from:
- shops, offices, factories, restaurants or other business premises
- mobile businesses such as beauticians, window cleaners or gardeners
- tradesmen such as builders, plumbers, tilers and kitchen fitters
- charities and non-profit organisations.
If you use part of your home to run your business then any waste from that part is business waste and must not disposed of in your household waste collection.
