Sustainable & Recycling Waste Management Services
Weekly, or fortnightly wheelie bin waste services for businesses
Firstly, what is business waste ?
If you have a HOME based business, a shop, restaurant, pub, office, warehouse or even a mobile catering or ice cream van, your waste is ALL business waste. ANY business waste, however and wherever created cannot be disposed of in your household bin, nor can it be taken to the local municipal waste site, or disposed of in a public litter bin.
Why is that ?
If you are a business or acting on behalf of a business you CANNOT transport any kind of waste, unless you have a waste carrier license. This absolutely includes your own waste, not just someone else's. Depending on what this waste consists of, you need to be sure you are disposing of it properly as it may be classed as hazardous. Paint for example, is hazardous waste, as are toner cartridges, things that you may take for granted as items you dispose of in your house, but when it is a business, it's a whole different story.
What if I don't have any waste ?
If you run a business, you'll have something, paper, boxes, packaging, toner cartridges, WEEE waste, shredding, old furniture, it's ALL classed as business waste and you need to have a waste contract in place OR you need to take it yourself to a COMMERCIAL waste site for disposal where you will be charged for it by weight but ensure that you have a waste license or you won't be able to dispose of it and you will also invalidate your own car insurance.
What if I just carry on and take a chance ?
Be our guest, but know that the fine could be up to £50,000 and 6 years imprisonment. This relates to it being classed as fly tipping.

We ensure that as much garden waste as possible is turned into high quality compost for use in a range of applications such as agriculture and multi-purpose compost. We're committed to preventing organic waste from becoming landfill.
We offer a contracted green waste solution with bins for those that find the council system either doesn't work for them or just have much larger gardens to deal with. We can arrange ad hoc collections, collect ton bags and loose waste too.
Do's and Don'ts in regards to Green Waste:
NO soil, rocks, hardcore, plastic and wood.
Green waste is green - so plants, weeds, cuttings and pruning, small twigs and branches and grass.
If you empty plant pots tap away as much soil as possible, no pots please
Bins must be able to be moved on hard ground - don't over fill please
EVENT WASTE CLEARANCE
Festivals, fetes, charity dos, sporting events, stage shows . . . special occasions like these create plenty of happy memories. But they can also create a lot of mess too, and keeping on top of this mess can be extremely tricky without the right organisation and committed experienced team at hand.
Our cost-effective and friendly event waste management services are kind to the planet. We segregate and sort waste then recycle wherever possible, keeping landfill to an absolute minimum.
TONERS AND INK CARDRIGES
Each year in the UK alone, millions of printer inkjet cartridges are used and thrown in the bin. Ink cartridges are not only made of materials which take years to decompose but they can also contain hazardous chemicals, both these factors are damaging to the environment.
As part of our waste management services, we can provide specialised collections for waste ink and toner cartridges. This helps keep your business’ printing sustainable, as undamaged toners can be reused, and damaged cartridges being recycled.
