Get a trade waste bin

If you need a waste, mixed recycling or glass bin for your business to use, our price includes:

  • bin hire and delivery
  • waste collection and disposal
  • a duty of care certificate
  • a trade waste agreement
  • administration fees

No VAT is charged on this service.

Get trade waste sacks

If your business is in a communal bin area you can buy commercial sacks. This service will allow you to place your business waste into the green commercial waste sacks purchased via the council’s website, which can then be disposed of directly into the large on-street communal refuse bins. 

Our sacks:

  • cost £2.95 per sack (no VAT to pay)
  • are sold in rolls of 50
  • come with a duty of care certificate
  • have no monthly administration fees
  • mean there’s no need to store refuse
  • can be deposited in on-street communal refuse bins
  • are 100 litres in size

We aim to deliver your commercial waste sacks within 5-7 working days of your order. 

Please be aware you will need a Duty of Care certificate if you are a new to the service. We cannot deliver commercial waste sacks until we have received a valid Duty of Care. It can take up to 10 working days to set up a new account and deliver commercial waste sacks for new customers. 

It's an offence for businesses to use our communal bins without buying sacks from us. We’ll issue you with a Fixed Penalty Notice under the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
