What is Commercial Waste?

Commercial waste is any waste that has come from your business. This includes any paper and confidential waste, as well as office furniture or appliances. The UK’s commercial and industrial wastes are estimated to account for 27.5 million tonnes every year.

Commercial organisations generate nearly twice as much waste than households, which means there’s a greater demand for commercial waste removal. If you run an organisation then it is necessary to arrange a collection service and research what this costs to not only keep up with current standards but also to avoid any future problems or expenses due to a lack of knowledge.

For UK guidelines check out the government’s advice for more details.

Nonetheless, the process of providing waste management services can be streamlined by using our bespoke packages. We have many options for every business, so we’ll fit your needs perfectly.

How to dispose of commercial waste?

When disposing of commercial waste it’s best to leave it to the professionals. When you choose a waste collection company, the first thing to check is their licence.
