Commercial recycling and waste services

If you own or run a business it is your responsibility to arrange how all waste and recyclable materials you generate are collected. For an overview of our services please download our Commercial Waste booklet (1MB PDF)​​Link opens in a new window ​​.


We offer a competitively priced collection service to help you reduce your waste and recycling costs. We also offer tips and advice on managing your business waste.


There is a Commercial Recycling Centre where all commercial businesses are able to take their waste for recycling and disposal.

Businesses are not allowed to get rid of their rubbish and recycling at our Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRC).

How it works – bins, bags, labels and bulky collections 


You can use bins or bags depending on: 


  • how much rubbish and recycling your business regularly generates
  • what type of rubbish and recycling you usually generate (such as lots of paper from your offices, or lots of food left-overs if you are a café or restaurant)
  • how much room you have,  inside and outside, to store bins or bags.
