Business waste and recycling

Find out if your building is eligible for kerbside bin services.

About our service

We offer kerbside bin services for eligible local businesses. Plus, a weekly cardboard collection for businesses trading along main shopping strips.

Is my business eligible?

Your business is eligible for our kerbside bin services if:

  • it's rated, meaning it's run from a property that pays rates
  • no other tenants in the building get our services.

We offer one ‘service' per property. If a business in your building already gets kerbside bin services, you’ll need to share bins.

What can go into business bins

You should follow the same rules for putting things in bins at work as you do at home. Only office and lunchroom waste should go in them.

For stuff like bulk foods or oil, you'll need to book a trade or commercial waste service from a private provider.

Collection days

We empty your bins once a week. You can check your area's bin day to see your allocated day.

Cardboard collection

We offer a free cardboard collection service to businesses on major shopping strips. Your loose cardboard will be collected on bin day.

Please make sure your cardboard is:

We won’t collect any plastics or general waste that is left beside bins.
