    What we can collect

    We offer two types of flexible commercial waste collection services:

    General waste (non-recyclable) collection

    Your local professional account manager will be happy to discuss your collection needs, explain our flexible approach and provide a competitive pricing structure, which will be VAT exempt, saving you 20 per cent!

    We can collect and dispose of non-recyclable, compactable waste produced by your business. Most businesses combine a general waste bin with a recycling bin to enable them to segregate their waste, prevent cross-contamination and save money, whilst meeting waste legislation and sending less waste to landfill.

    Dry mixed recycling collection

    Recycling is one of the easiest actions that a business can undertake to reduce waste service costs and reduce its impact on the environment.

    We actively encourage all our business customers to recycle as much waste as possible. Items we collect include glass bottles and jars, plastic food pots, food and drink cartons, paper, cardboard, aluminium cans, and plastic bottles.

    Segregating your waste and sending as much waste to be recycled as possible reduces your footprint on the environment and also reduces your overall cost due to the high landfill tax on general waste.

    All waste has to be dry, compactable and recyclable.
