Commercial waste services

Liverpool Streetscene Services (LSS) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Liverpool City Council set up to provide a wide range of services for businesses and residents.

Our commercial waste services for businesses include:

  • Containers - from 240 to 1,100 litres with collections up to five times per week.
  • Bag collections - for the smaller businesses which generate a small amount of waste, or a business that does not have enough storage space for a bin.
  • Skips, compactors, roll on and roll offs - on a contract basis, ranging from 8 cubic yards to 35 cubic yards in size.

You can also taking advantage of our promise to recycle or re-use around 90 per cent of all waste we collect from your business.

Please email commercial.waste@lssl.liverpool.gov.uk or call 0151 233 0757 to find out more about these paid for services.

Your responsibilities

Businesses have a duty to organise their own commercial waste removal and recycling.

If you do not choose to use LSS, you must sign a trade refuse agreement with a carrier who is legally authorised to carry waste and pay the charges. Keep a copy of all documentation for two years. You can be prosecuted if you cannot produce full records for the last two years.

Illegal dumping of waste

If your waste is discovered to have been disposed of illegally, even by your carrier, your company will face legal proceedings.
