Commercial waste and recycling

If you own or run a business, even if it is from your home, you must make arrangements for your business waste and recycling to be disposed of separately to your household waste.

We can help and offer a range of different containers and collection frequencies for all your business/commercial refuse and recycling needs.

If you would like us to provide you with a trade waste quote, please fill in our commercial waste application form or email

Your duty as a business

As a business you have a duty of care to have your waste collected by a contracted licensed waste carrier. The Landfill Directive (introduced in 2007) states that businesses have to recycle at least one type of material. For further information visit the Environment Agency website or call 0800 80 70 60.

Make money from your waste!

Have you checked out NISP? It is a free service which will try to match your waste materials with a company looking for raw material. This means you may be able to sell your waste. To find out more, visit the NISP website.
