Commercial waste services

Liverpool Streetscene Services Ltd (LSSL) 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 six 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.

Please email 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 LSSL, 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. The council can issue a £300 fixed penalty charge or take action via the Magistrates' Court where the maximum fine is £5,000, if you are found guilty.
