Dispose of your waste

Introduction

The majority of waste produced by businesses in Northern Ireland is disposed of in landfill. Commercial, industrial and domestic waste is either deposited onto or buried in these landfill sites. There are, however, alternative waste management options that your business can consider:

  • minimise and reduce waste at source, lowering disposal costs
  • reuse waste material in your business, to improve efficiency and save money
  • recycle waste, saving resources by avoiding disposal
  • trade waste, to generate revenue

This guide outlines some of the options for disposing of business waste in Northern Ireland. It will also help you assess the costs to your business and assess the benefits of using more efficient and environmentally sound waste disposal options.
