Commercial Recycling Centre at Bessemer Close

We aim to provide a cost efficient option for small and medium enterprises to dispose of recycling and trade waste.


This will help to increase the amount of commercial waste diverted from landfill by encouraging traders to recycle and will also help to reduce the potential for household recycling centres being used unlawfully to dispose of commercial waste.
