Waste disposal in Cardiff

Responsible, safe, and legal waste disposal in Cardiff is vital for businesses to protect themselves and the environment. Since the number of recycling centres in Cardiff was halved and fines were introduced for waste offences, separation of waste and efficient recycling is more important than ever for businesses in Cardiff. In 2016, the local council issued over £169,000 in fines relating to waste.

At Business Waste, we offer a reliable solution for waste disposal in Cardiff. This includes providing you with the right bins to sort your rubbish easily and arranging collection and disposal that reduces the amount of rubbish sent to landfill. We’re passionate about working with local Cardiff companies to help them be as clean and green as possible.

Licensed waste carriers will remove your bins and transport your refuse to a waste management facility for safe and legal disposal. You’ll receive a free duty of care certificate confirming this. We aim to reduce rubbish going to landfill and can handle everything from general to clinical waste for dependable waste disposal in Cardiff.

Recycling in Cardiff

Cardiff currently has a recycling rate of 64%, which is higher than many cities but below the Welsh Assembly’s target of 70% by 2025. Recycling in Cardiff is essential for businesses and households to meet this goal and protect the environment of the Welsh capital and surrounding area.

The number of recycling centres in Cardiff has been cut in half, from four to two. Since 2012, fly-tipping has risen an astonishing 59% as locals struggle to deal with the new waste system. Many residents have claimed that they have been kept in the dark and complain about a lack of clarity over the separation of waste.

Improve recycling in Cardiff with the right types, numbers, and sizes of bins to separate recyclable rubbish your organisation produces. We can provide free bins for the likes of glass recycling, paper, metal, wood, plastic, and dry mixed recycling. Recycling in Cardiff helps the environment and reduces how much landfill tax you pay for commercial waste disposal.

Got a question about
Cardiff rubbish removal?

  • 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.

    Yes! We can collect a wide range of waste types in various amounts from all sorts of businesses.

  • 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.
