Free waste transfer note

Your business needs to be responsible with its waste and recycling to meet regulations. You need a waste transfer note to prove that you comply. You might also need extra documentation if your waste includes hazardous things like electrical waste.

Most waste providers will charge you for these documents. When you recycle with us, you get all the documents you need for free. And they’re available to download online any time.

What is a Waste Transfer Note?

It’s a document which shows you’ve met your duty of care obligations. That means you’ve:

  • Prevented waste creation in the first place
  • Reused everything you can
  • Recycled everything you can
  • Recovered energy from your waste
  • Disposed of your waste as a last resort
