If you need to make any alteration to the agreement, a new Trade Waste Agreement will need to be issued, arrangements will be made for an officer to visit the contract holder to obtain a signature.  If more bins are needed or bins need to be collected this will be completed within 5 working days.

Trade Waste Guidelines

As part of your agreement, we expect that:

  • All containers should be stored off street in a secure location
  • All refuse should be contained within the container and the lid closed prior to collection
  • For collection purposes all containers should be placed at the boundary of your property by 6.30am on the morning of your collection day
  • Please return your container to the normal storage area as soon as practicable after emptying
  • Side waste will not be taken under any circumstances. If you are unable to contain your waste within the bin provided, additional containers may be required

Commercial wheeled containers remain the property of Broxtowe Borough Council.
