Waste Management Belfast
Throughout the UK, waste management is a serious and carefully monitored and regulated process for any business – no matter what its size or sector – and this is certainly true in Belfast. For example, the Northern Ireland Environment Agency introduced legislation in 2016 mandating that all businesses that generate more than 50kg of food waste must have a food waste collection.
Business Waste Belfast offers a one stop solution for all waste management, including regular collection and disposal, and robust recycling commitment. We can collect from anywhere in Belfast – though our services are focused on business waste and we don’t handle any household waste.
Competitively priced, we also offer businesses reliability and thoroughness, carrying out regular waste collections seamlessly with minimum disruption and no residual mess. As well as reliable waste management and collections through Belfast, we offer Belfast businesses waste audits and skip hire. Call 0800 211 8390 or contact us online for a free quote today.

With bins and collection schedules to suit all ventures, Business Waste Belfast can tailor its services around specific business needs; not just industrial sites but also schools, tourist attractions, venues and other enterprises where waste collection needs to be 100% thorough and discrete.
Different types of business waste needs different handling methods, but there is no collection challenge in Belfast that we can’t meet. This includes collecting all types of waste.
Belfast City Council’s tough stance on who can and can’t access local authority operated recycling centres has put pressure on businesses to find cost effective ways of dealing with waste, without compromising environmental policies.
Our state of the art recycling facilities and trackable systems solve these challenges. A wide range of waste products can be removed from businesses to be repurposed
One of Europe’s most compact and friendly cities, Belfast marries its strong maritime history and its superb Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian architecture, for a thriving and ambitious modern economy.
Hosting in excess of 9,000 registered businesses, Belfast accounts for 13% of North Ireland’s commercial sector. This includes 25% of the country’s agricultural enterprises. Its most famous export of course is beautiful Irish linen.
Tourism is also big business in Belfast. The city attracts in excess of 4m visitors each year, and this supports over 17,300 tourism jobs. Fast becoming one of Europe’s most popular short break destinations, Belfast is cashing in on its rising popularity by building its reputation as a conference and event location. This means it’s increasingly hosting national and international events and festivals.
All of this activity is taking Belfast a million miles away from its negative media profile of past decades. There is an increasing appreciation instead for its array of pubs and churches, Belfast’s fascinating seaport where the iconic Titanic exhibition is located, and its excellent university and busy shopping areas.
Visitors are also drawn to Belfast’s award-winning Irish Linen museum, located in Lisburn’s oldest building, the 17th century Market House. Belfast’s rich heritage in the production of fine crystal items is also a source of fascination and international shoppers.
With such vibrant industry, commerce and tourism activity, comes rising levels of waste. Local authorities, regulatory bodies and business leaders are all committed to policies which protect beautiful Belfast’s environmental integrity. But this comes at a cost to businesses, and it causes a constant headache.
This is where Business Waste Belfast comes in – providing organisations of all shapes and sizes with efficient and effective waste disposal and recycling services to keep them on track.

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.
Can I pay my bill online?
Yes – visit our payments page to pay your invoice online. You’ll need your billing and payment details, including your account and invoice number (if applicable).
Do you cover all of the UK?
Yes! Our nationwide network means we offer waste collections anywhere in the UK. Whatever type of waste you need to dispose of and wherever you’re based in the country, we’ll find a local solution for your waste management and recycling needs.
Do you provide free bins?

Do you offer flexible waste collections?
We realise that your waste collection needs may change as your business grows, seasons change, and demand for your products or services fluctuate. Alongside offering daily, weekly, and fortnightly collections, you can add more, different types, or bigger bins to your services and adapt the frequency of collections.
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.
