Waste Collection

We are committed to helping Dumfries’ businesses to achieve their own goals of sustainable waste management, and we have invested in high quality kits to support this – from skips and roll-on/roll-off containers, through to front end loader bins, wheelie bins and specialist collection bins. We can also safely and effectively dispose of hazardous waste and difficult substances, such as soil, gypsum board and asbestos.

Waste Disposal

It can be challenging for businesses in Dumfries to stay on top of their recycling and waste disposal, especially with a fluctuating student and tourist population. Our services help to make things easy, by offering a cost effective, reliable and frequent waste delivery service that aims to recycle as much as possible. Our trained team will arrange collections for the frequency that you need and offer a hassle-free, smooth service with additional waste management services on offer as required.


Dumfries is the primary town of Dumfries and Galloway and a thriving commercial centre with a large university student population. It has a population of over 31,000 people, which fluctuates according to tourist and student travel and which provides plenty of business to the local economy. Local industry is heavily centred around agriculture, forestry and light industry, with significant tourism and the thriving retail, leisure and entertainment centre of Dumfries itself. The public sector is also a huge local employer, with challenging waste management issues of its own due to its breadth of services.

Key local employers include Scottish Power, Dumfries and Galloway Council, Dumfries & Galloway college, University of the West of Scotland, Kellwood Engineering, the NHS, Gates Power Transmission, McAlpine, Tesco, Nivens and Third Sector Dumfries & Galloway.

Business Waste

Accessibility in winter months can be a challenge in this part of Southern Scotland, especially in outlying villages and hamlets, but Dumfries itself is well situated for road and rail networks and has five household waste recycling centres which are operated by the council. The A75 runs right through the town, linking up with the wider area and local towns such as Castle Douglas and Kirkcudbright.

The region was recently flagged up in a comment by Boris Johnson as needing investment, and local businesses are working hard in partnership to present the best visitor experience. Effective waste management plays a part in this, and Business Waste can help ensure that the streets are clean and business shopfronts look welcoming

  • 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.
