Waste disposal in Glasgow

We strive to help Glasgow meet its waste targets by aiming for zero landfill with all the waste we remove and dispose of. Your waste will be organised into recyclable and non-recyclable waste and sent for recycling and recovery where possible. Rubbish such as food and organic waste may be sent for composting or anaerobic digestion.

Responsible waste disposal in Glasgow involves reducing the amount of rubbish sent to landfill sites. In our view, everything that can be recycled should be recycled and, if you use our services, we can ensure this happens. This also reduces your waste management costs as you’ll pay less landfill tax for commercial waste disposal.

Business Waste operates commercial waste management services collecting waste from various businesses and commercial organisations across the UK. We’re knowledgeable, experienced, and successful in our trade. You receive a free duty of care certificate for any waste disposal in Glasgow that confirms the safe and legal disposal of your rubbish.

Recycling in Glasgow

Glasgow has a household recycling rate of 27.6% according to the latest figures. Currently Glasgow sends to landfill more than 165,000 tonnes of household and 50,000 tonnes of this is made up of food waste. Tie is running out to meet the Scottish government targets of no more than 5% waste going to landfill by 2025.

The Council’s recent campaigns have promoted an increase in recycling for its residents, there’s a lot more businesses can do to help move closer to greener targets. Companies must arrange their own commercial waste collections in Glasgow and there should be a focus on increasing recycling where possible.

At Business Waste we can help improve recycling in Glasgow by providing free bins for companies to separate waste types. This includes bins and containers for cardboard, paper, glass, plastic, metal, and other recyclable rubbish. We then ensure such waste is taken to an appropriate recycling centre for recycling.

Got a question about
waste collection in Glasgow?

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
