Waste Removal

Using the Waste Removal Service

Hartlepool Borough Council offers a range of local, efficient and professional waste removal services to both households and businesses.  The Environmental Protection Act 1990 states that all householders and businesses have a duty of care to dispose of their waste responsibly. This means as a householder or business you are responsible for what happens to your waste, even after it has left your property or premises. Please ensure you only use the Local Authority or a private waste carrier registered with the Environment Agency to dispose of your waste.  With all our services you can be confident that your waste will be collected and disposed of in accordance with legal and environmental requirements by a team of experienced waste experts.
