It's Cheaper to be Green!
The disposal charges for recyclable material are far cheaper than landfill charges. We pass this saving directly onto our customers so the more you recycle, the more you can save!
We offer a mixed collection service for your recyclable materials. This option allows you to recycle the following items in the same container.
- Cardboard and Paper
- Metal tins, cans and foil
- Plastic bottles and trays
This service enables your business to capture a wide range of recyclables and reduce the amount that you send to landfill. In some areas we can offer a dedicated weekly cardboard collection service, please contact us for further details

Business Waste – Your Responsibilities
Under Section 34 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990, all businesses have a Duty of Care for the storage and disposal of their waste. Business rates do not cover businesses for any recycling or waste collections. It is the businesses owners responsibility to manage all of the waste the business produces.
