Information on the Councils commercial waste collection service
Craven District Council provides a Commercial Waste collection service to over 1,000 commercial premises every week. Refuse from commercial properties is collected by the Council by contract arrangement. Charges are based upon the amount of waste produced by container size and the service can be tailored to a businesses specific requirements.
We can provide waste containers in a range of sizes to suit the needs of individual businesses. We can also provide 'Pay as you go' green refuse sacks for businesses that produce a small amount of commercial waste or where bin storage is a problem. Please see Commercial waste - trade bins for more details
We will collect almost anything, however, there are some types of waste which require special treatment, such as asbestos, chemicals, electrical equipment and other hazardous materials.

Waste Transfer Note
An updated version of the Business Waste Handbook (2nd edition) [4Mb] has been produced by Craven, in association with Leeds City Council, to help local businesses manage their waste correctly and save money. It has been estimated that waste can cost companies about 4% of turnover. The handbook contains tips on how to reduce waste and ensure that all legal obligations are met.
