Commercial Waste Collection Service
As of April 2016 Cannock Chase Council will no longer be in a position to provide a Commercial Waste Collection Service. All of our customers have been informed by letter that the collection service will be ending and that they need to obtain a contract with another waste service supplier.
If you are looking to obtain a waste collection service here are some links to some - not all - of the companies that operate in the Cannock Chase area:
Biffa Waste Services http://www.biffa.co.uk/business-waste/our-services/general-waste-collection/
Fortress Recycling http://fortress-recycling.clickforward.com/
Weir waste htttp://www.weirwaste.co.uk/
Sita Waste Serviceshttp://www.sita.co.uk/services-and-products/business-customers
The Council is not endorsing/recommending the above companies and there are other waste companies that can be considered.
Small Traders Waste Disposal Scheme
Small Traders Waste Disposal Scheme (operated by Staffordshire County Council)
The Small Traders Waste Disposal Scheme is a new initiative designed to allow small traders to dispose of their waste more easily and efficiently. By providing facilities at existing Community Recycling Centres (CRC) with a basic pricing structure, trade waste disposal couldn't be easier.
How do I use this service?
It's simple! Just turn up at Cannock HWRC (Poplars Tip) and approach the sentry box on site. From here one of the advisors will be able to check your materials for disposal and provide a price quotation.

Legal obligations and Duty of Care
Everyone has a responsibility, whether a householder or a business, to ensure that they dispose of the waste in a responsible way. This includes ensuring that the person or business that collects your waste has the appropriate licensees and paper work, this is called: Duty of care.
- classify your waste and know if it’s hazardous or non-hazardous so you can deal with it correctly
- register your premises if you produce or store hazardous waste
- usually get a permit to store, treat, transport or dispose of your waste yourself
- store your waste safely and securely
- follow the rules for moving waste off your business premises
- check that any business you use to deal with your waste is licensed, and keep proof of this – eg take a copy of their licence
You have extra responsibilities if you’re dealing with hazardous waste.
