What do we classify
as general waste?

General waste, also called residual waste, is made up of items that are produced as a waste by your business that cannot be recycled through other available means.

It should be dry, light and compactable when being disposed of in a wheeled bin, REL or FEL container.

No hazardous waste or waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) should be disposed in any waste container. These waste items should always be dealt with separately.

We can help you identify your different waste streams during our waste audit process and then advise you on the optimum number of bins, types of bins and the frequency of collections you will need.

Containers are picked up by Refuse compaction vehicles (RVC), skips or RoRo vehicles.

If you are in a listed building or on a busy high street where containers are not permitted on the highway, we can supply you with bags which you can order online and get collected in a similar way to the containers.

Regardless of your business,  we can recommend the right service to meet your needs

General waste could include items such as:

Light commercial waste
Contaminated recycling items

Food contaminated tins / trays / pots
