Waste and recycling collections

All businesses have a legal responsibility for the safe disposal of business waste. Contact us for a free of charge and no obligation waste and recycling assessment: 

  • business rates do not cover commercial waste and recycling collections, so it is important that you have a waste and recycling service set up
  • waste collections are usually weekly but fortnightly can be arranged
  • business waste can also be brought to Thames Road Waste Transfer Station

The following services are provided:

  • prices fixed for 12 months on 1 April
  • tailored advice on how to save up to 37% by recycling, and free recycling container hire
  • help in meeting and understanding your Duty of Care
  • collect commercial waste in a variety of sizes, from sacks to 1100l euro bins

Electronic, bulky and hazardous waste

If your business generates any waste electrical or electronic equipment (WEEE) it needs to comply with UK WEEE regulations.

If you need to dispose of hazardous or bulky items which cannot be collected or disposed of using regular services, such as asbestos, chemical, textile, oils, paint, tyres and more, please visit the Environment Agency.
