The city of Aberdeen is a beautiful coastal city with a golden beach that sits between its two rivers, the Dee and the Don. With the biggest population in Scotland, Aberdeen has weathered times of economic change and has successfully moved from being a city of manufacture and fishing to one of high tech electronics development and oil. In 2011, Aberdeen was named the best place for economic growth in the UK. This level of success has led to the development of a popular and vibrant city but has brought with it some issues around waste management, recycling and the environment.

Recycling targets in Scotland are high and the Aberdeen City Waste Strategy 2014-2025 sets out to minimise both landfill and waste production whilst maximising recycling and organic waste treatment. The aim is to increase household recycling to 60% by 2020. This is an ambitious target and local businesses also have a moral responsibility to keep their recycling rates high and a legal obligation to meet the Duty of Care requirements.

Business Waste

Business Waste offer locally based waste management solutions across the UK. We tailor our services to suit both the community in which we are working and individual organisations. This highly personalised service includes waste management advice, container hire, waste tracking, legal requirement training and recycling advice. Business Waste aim to take away the hard work of waste management and give business owners and managers back their much needed time. Used to handling a wide variety of waste disposal needs, Business Waste offer the highest standards of customer service at a competitive price including:

• Waste management (audits, duty of care, legal requirements etc)
•Waste collection (Front end loaders, wheelie bins, compactors, skip hire etc)
• Recycling (advice, scrap metal, garden soil etc)

Many people visit Scotland and the city of Aberdeen for its natural beauty and spectacular scenery. The east coast of Scotland is a lesser-known treasure than the west and, because it is more populated, the management of waste is key to keeping this precious environment clean for future generations.

  • Can I add an additional bin to my service?

    Yes, of course. We can provide extra bins for new waste streams to encourage recycling. Or if you’re simply producing more waste of the same type, we can add an extra or larger bin to your delivery and collection services if you’re at capacity.

  • Do you supply a duty of care certificate?

    Yes, we provide a duty of care certificate (also known as a waste transfer note (WTN)) free of charge as part of your service agreement. This is included for free every time we collect any type of waste from your premises. Duty of care certificates are a legal requirement and licensed waste carriers can complete them for free – so you should never be charged for one.

    Find out more about them in our guide to waste transfer notes.

  • How often will my bin be emptied?

    We offer our customers a choice of daily, weekly, or fortnightly collections – so your bins are emptied as often as you want. Our expert team can advise on the correct waste collection schedule based on the type and amount of waste you produce and your business needs – such as your bin storage space and location.

  • What time will my bin be collected?

    Bin collection times vary depending on your location, waste type, number and size of bins, and other factors. We work with all our customers to ensure your waste is always collected on time when it’s suitable for you and the licensed waste carrier. We can work around access times to arrange collections at convenient times.

  • What type of wheelie bins are available?

    A range of two and four-wheel bins are available to store all sorts of waste on your premises. Explore our bins to see all available bins and information about what types and amounts of waste they can hold.

    For any questions and answers about wheelie bin weight limits, sizes, locks, and anything else – read our bin FAQ guide.

  • How can we reduce our waste?

    There are many ways to reduce the amount of waste we produce as individuals and businesses. A waste audit can highlight where you’re producing lots of waste as a starting place to cut down. Simple steps to reduce waste include efficient purchasing, buying reusable products, and recycling as much as possible. For more tips, read our guide about how to reduce waste.

    If you have specific questions about reducing a certain type of waste, find the relevant page in Your Waste.

  • Do you collect any type of waste?

    Yes! We can collect a wide range of waste types in various amounts from all sorts of businesses. From general waste to popular glass, paper, and packaging recycling – as well as specialist waste streams such as clinical, hazardous, and pharmaceutical waste – we work with licensed waste carriers able to safely collect all such types.

    Contact us today if you want to change your waste collections.

  • Is Business Waste ISO certified?

    Yes, Business Waste has received Alcumus ISOQAR certification for:

    • ISO 9001: 2015 – Quality management systems
    • ISO 14001: 2015 – Environmental management systems

    These are both in the scope of registration for the provision of waste management brokerage.

  • What is ISO certification and why is it important?

    The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an independent, non-governmental group that uses experts to set global standards for providing innovation and solutions to worldwide challenges. ISO certification confirms a management system, manufacturing process, service, or documentation procedure meets the requirements for standardisation and quality assurance.

    ISO certification is provided by a third party – in our case Alcumus ISOQAR, which provides UKAS accredited ISO certification. The standards provide benchmarks for businesses to meet, ensuring achieving ISO certification demonstrates a well-run, stable business that’s ready to grow. There are more than 20,000 management standards, but the two we’ve achieved provide the following benefits:

    • ISO 9001: 2015 – helps put our customers first.
    • ISO 14001: 2015 – reduces our environmental impact.
