Waste Disposal

Our waste management experts can arrange collections and disposal to meet specific business needs, from large companies based in the county town of Carlisle to small businesses catering to tourists in Penrith. We can also offer a variety of useful equipment to ensure that rubbish collection is as easy and hassle-free as possible. We can provide everything from wheelie bins and front-end loaders to skips and roll-on and roll-off containers. We are also experts in dealing with hazardous or difficult materials and substances, including asbestos, soils and gypsum boards. While we might not be on the scale of Sellafield (Cumbria’s largest private employer), we should still be your first port of call whatever your specific waste management needs. Get in touch and you’ll have a quote within an hour.


Cumbria County Council has a vision of creating one of Britain’s fastest growing economies. This would mean making the most of a diverse and complex business environment in which world-class energy, manufacturing and engineering companies thrive alongside successful food and drink businesses and an abundance of tourism firms including holiday lets, catering to the 42.9 million people who visit the county each year.

This bountiful business community is likely to grow further in the future as the local authorities focus on creating a compelling and unique case for investors and companies looking for opportunities within the global economy. In particular, Cumbria is a county where forecasted investment is beating major urban conurbations and where tourism already generates around £2.62 billion a year.

Business Waste

The current Cumbria Strategic Economic Plan focuses on advanced manufacturing growth, a vibrant visitor and rural economy, excellence within the nuclear and energy industries and maximising the strategic importance of the major M6 Corridor. This involves the county council working with the Local Enterprise Partnership to boost the economic future of the area.

This all signals exciting times for the county in terms of business and economic growth, but the future is also likely to present some challenges in the form of dealing with an increasing amount of rubbish. Waste management Cumbria will be buzz words as the business community grows.

  • 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.

  • 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.
