Your bins

It is important, and cheaper, for your business to recycle as much of its waste as possible

We provide a full commercial waste collection service for:

  • Recycling
  • Food recycling
  • General waste (anything not currently recyclable)

Use the guide below to find out what goes in which bin:

Recycling

Purple and green trade waste bins

We collect recycling in green or purple bins, which includes:

  • food tins, drink cans and aerosols
  • paper and cardboard
  • plastic bottles, pots, tubs and trays
  • glass bottles and jars
  • cartons
  • plastic bags, clean film and wrapping

Food recycling

Brown trade waste bin

Your food waste will be turned into high-grade soil-improver, used by domestic and agricultural customers, closing the local food loop.

We will collect on as many days of the week as you require.

What you can put in your food bin:

  • all meat, fish and bones (cooked or raw)
  • bread and pastries
  • tea bags and leaves, coffee grounds
  • spillages
  • fruit and vegetable peelings
  • dairy products
  • plate scrapings
  • sink strainer scraps

General waste (anything not currently recyclable)

Black and blue trade waste bins

General waste is collected in blue or black bins. Most non-recyclable commercial waste can be put into these bins, with the exception of heavy or dangerous substances such as rubble, clinical or electrical waste.

Short of storage space?

If bin storage is a problem, we can discuss providing a different bin size or providing you with recycling and waste sacks.

Skips

We can provide large roll-on, roll-off 13 cubic metre skips, open or enclosed as required by arrangement.  These can be used for either recycling or refuse as you need.
