20/03/2023- Business waste - Duty of Care

Councillor Caroline Makinson, Cabinet spokesperson for Public Health and Communities, said “Duty of Care has been a national requirement for all UK businesses since 1990. Businesses have a legal responsibility to ensure that waste is stored, transported and disposed of without harming the environment. Enforcement action has been taken where this has not been demonstrated. Where an appeal against enforcement action has been raised, we have reviewed the individual cases.  We are pleased that most businesses comply with these standard legal requirements in Barnsley and purchase services to dispose of their waste correctly.  Barnsley Council have a dedicated webpage with guidelines on this subject - barnsley.gov.uk/business-waste-responsibilities.”
