Waste Disposal

Business Waste operates commercial waste management services collecting waste from various businesses and commercial organisations all across the UK. We are knowledgeable, experienced and successful in our trade, which allows more time for our clients to continue being successful in their own businesses and keep Glasgow thriving.

We strive to help Glasgow meet its waste targets by aiming for zero landfill with all of the waste we dispose of. Your waste will be organised into recyclable and non-recyclable waste. In our view, everything that can be recycled should be recycled and, if you use our services, we can ensure that this happens.


As the largest city in Scotland and the biggest seaport in Britain, Glasgow is a cultural hub of activity and excitement. It is a perfect place for businesses and tourism to thrive in Scotland. The city covers an area of 1,040 square miles with a population of just under one million Glaswegians and around 17,000 business and commercial organisations. With so many businesses, tourists and residents in one city it is important that Glasgow is kept clean and it continues to be enjoyed.

With an European Union target of 50% waste recycled by 2020, a local scheme “Zero Waste”, the Waste (Scotland) Regulations 2012 and Scottish Government targets of no more than 5% waste going to landfill by 2025, it is clear that Scotland is aiming to play its part in a green future. Currently, Glasgow sends to landfill over 165,000 tonnes of household waste alone, 50,000 tonnes of this is made up of food waste. While the Council’s recent campaigns have promoted an increase in recycling for its residents, there is a lot more that businesses and companies can do to help move closer to the imposed greener targets.

  • 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.
