Commercial waste collection

Businesses and charities can't use the general kerbside waste collection service and must have a legal contract with a registered waste collection company.

You can register with us and we'll agree a collection plan which is tailored around your individual requirements. You can also purchase:

  • wheeled bins in various sizes
  • special sacks for waste not suitable for bins
  • stickers for cardboard waste

We will supply the annual waste transfer note that you're legally required to have.

We'll also agree a payment plan. Invoices are usually issued quarterly and in advance. There are number of ways to pay:

What we can't collect

There are certain types of waste that we can't uplift as part of this service:

  • Hazardous waste such as car batteries, oil, paint, tyres and fluorescent tubes.
  • Large commercial electrical and electronic equipment such as fridges, freezers and display cabinets.
  • Farm waste

These items must be collected and disposed of by specialist contractors. There are a number of companies locally who handle this type of collection.

We also offer a separate bulky uplift service for large items .

Contact us if you're not sure whether an item can be collected. We can provide a quote and organise an alternative pick up method if necessary.
