Apply for a business waste containers exemption certificate

Business waste bins cannot be left on roads or pavements in the city centre between 12.30pm and 2.30pm each day.

If your business has nowhere else to store its bins during these times, you can apply for an exemption certificate. This will allow you leave the bins out on the street. Businesses will be fined if we have to remove unauthorised bins.

There is a charge of £100 per certificate. Each certificate applies to a single bin and is valid for one year. As part of the application process, a site visit will be conducted to assess whether there are any viable alternatives to leaving the bins on the street.
