Business waste

Business waste collections

Existing customers: Due to recent events surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic, you can suspend your collections with immediate effect. Bins will remain at your current location and collections will resume only on your instructions. All charges will reflect the suspension.

New customers: We are not currently providing a recycling service for new customers. When the crisis is over, we will be offering a new recycling service, where we will be collecting paper and card, and cans and plastics, separately. Watch out for this new service which will be provided at incredibly low charges. To express your interest in this new scheme by completing the online enquiry form below and we will contact you with further details once we know when the collection service will be commencing.
