Man and Van
Our Man and Van service is designed to collect any type of rubbish removal including specialist and commercial waste. Some items, such as WEEE, require particular handling. Business Waste is committed to safe transport and disposal.
BusinessWaste.co.uk offers a range of collection services operating across the UK. Contact us for further information.
Hiring a skip is a great way to deal with business waste that would otherwise be difficult to store or transport. Business Waste will deliver and collect your skip at a convenient time.
The size of your skip will depend on your amount and type of waste. Make sure that you don’t overfill your skip to avoid extra costs. All skips contain a skip line indicating their maximum capacity. If you are concerned about the placement of your skip, contact your local council first as you may need a permit.
Business Waste offers five skip sizes:
Mini Skip (2 cubic yards/ 4x4x3 feet) for general waste and smaller DIY jobs;
Midi Skip (4 cubic yards/ 6x4x3 feet) for general household waste and larger DIY, e.g. kitchen renovation;
Small Builders’ Skip (6 cubic yards/ 10x4x4 feet) for general and heavy waste, e.g. concrete, and for house refurbishments or renovations;
Large Builders’ Skip (8 cubic yards/ 12x6x4 feet) for heavy waste and commercial refit jobs;
Large Maxi Skip (12 cubic yards/ 13x6x6 feet) for widescale renovation/ refurb/ clearance projects, may require council approval and cannot contain heavy waste, e.g. soil.
Acceptable items include sofas and old furniture, that might otherwise be difficult to dispose of, as well as general waste.
Some waste cannot be put into a skip: full paint tins; mattresses; plasterboard; tyres; Waste Electrical and Electronic Waste (WEEE); asbestos.
If you are unsure about any items, contact us directly for advice.

James was very helpful and to be honest since starting with this company the service has been excellent.
Ordering a skip bag is lighter and cheaper than hiring a skip. BusinessWaste.co.uk provides both bags and collections directly, saving you from having to source your own.
Three sizes are available:
Midibag (90x90x90cm/ 1 tonne of waste);
Megabag (180x90x70cm/ 1.5 tonnes of waste);
Hipposkip (210x165x100cm/ 1.5 tonnes of waste).
Skip bags can be used for general household, DIY, and garden waste. They cannot be used for hazardous or contaminated waste, food waste, chemicals, liquids, electrical goods, asbestos or batteries.
There is no time limit for collection. Simply fill your bag up and contact us to arrange pick-up. You will need to consider where to keep your bag as it must be left 4m from the road for collection. Skip bags are waterproof to help with this.
What are the most common types of junk?
White goods removal
White goods include large household appliances like washing machines and fridges. These items are classed as Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and so must be handled specially.
Business Waste is certified to handle WEEE, offering collection services at a low cost. Contact us for a free quote and further details about the services provided.
The handling of waste furniture depends on its material composition. For example, old chairs and tables may be classed as used wood waste. We are able to provide specific wood collection services and aim to recycle wood where possible. Much furniture can be placed in a skip.
Office equipment disposal
This depends on the materials used to make your office equipment. For example, laptops and copying equipment are classed as IT and telecommunications equipment, a form of WEEE. Contact us to determine the appropriate collection service.
Sofas include several materials that are each handled separately. Sofas placed in a skip will be dissembled and individual components recycled or disposed of appropriately.
Builders’ waste collection
Much builders’ waste will be classified as general waste. Some items may be recyclable if made from metal, wood, plastic or cardboard, for example. Tools like saws and drills count as WEEE. Get in touch with us to discuss your options.
General waste consists of items that cannot be recycled. This includes any items that you would usually throw into the general waste bin at home, excluding medical waste, chemicals or hazardous products. We provide various wheelie bins and collection services for general waste. Contact us if you are unsure about which items are recyclable.
Fly-tipped waste collection
Fly-tipping refers to the illegal dumping of waste in an area that does not have a license to accept it. Fly-tipping is not only against the law, incurring fines and penalties, but is also highly disruptive and ecologically harmful.
Business Waste offers an extensive range of services to handle all of your waste items, ensuring that you will never need to worry about where or how to deposit your waste. We will provide you with the tools and services to ensure that your waste is managed legally and securely.
What happens to junk waste once it is collected?
The fate of your waste will vary greatly depending on its type.
At Business Waste we are committed to sustainability and so try to reuse or recycle as much waste as possible. For example, we transport WEEE to specialist treatment facilities so that appliances are dissembled into components for reuse.
For wood waste, there are many options for recycling as it demands very little processing. For example, wood waste may be broken down into wood chips or composted to develop biofuel.
Whilst general waste cannot be recycled, we recognise that disposal in landfill is a last resort and will always encourage reuse and recycling where possible.
Is it important to divert my junk waste away from landfill?
Landfill poses a threat to both our society and the environment. Waste deposited in landfill cannot be biodegraded or recycled and so builds up over time. This can lead to the release of toxic gases or pollution following precipitation if the site is not properly contained.
Wherever possible, Business Waste aims to divert waste away from landfill. This is because we want to support sustainable solutions that protect our health, society and the environment.
Are there any other options to dispose of my waste?
When looking at the waste hierarchy you will see that disposal is the least favourable form of waste management. This means that other forms are more sustainable and have a lower social and environmental impact.
Ultimately the best option is to minimise your waste altogether. However, when this is not possible, it is best to consider whether items can first be reused. For example, it is worth considering whether old clothes or furniture can be donated to charity or perhaps even sold online.
What laws govern the disposal of rubbish removal and junk waste?
Every business has a series of duties and responsibilities to ensure that their waste is safely and correctly disposed of. It is important that you store and sort your waste safely and securely and keep a record of collections with a waste transfer note. As a fully licensed waste carrier, Business Waste is committed to the safe and legal disposal of waste.
