Gloucester waste collection

Book waste collection in Gloucester from anywhere across the city. Organise waste removal from hotels close to Blackfriars Priory, restaurants around Gloucester Docks to offices at Gloucester Business Park and garages out in Innsworth. We can collect commercial waste of all types and volumes from across the cathedral city.

Businesses in Gloucester must book commercial waste collection to get rid of all their rubbish. The local council will not remove it like they do with your household bins. This is especially true after Tewkesbury Borough Council cancelled their commercial waste services that served many businesses in the town and wider Gloucestershire region.

Enjoy cheap waste collection in Gloucester as we provide free bins for your business to use. There are no hire charges or delivery fees – you just pay for the bin collection. Choose from a wide range of bins, bags, and containers to suit your needs. This includes wheelie bins and sharps bins for clinical waste to balers and compactors.

Local waste collection experts manage your rubbish collections in Gloucester. They’re licensed waste carriers and ensure everything is removed on time and transported to nearby waste management facilities for responsible disposal. If you want any advice or help with a waste audit or plan then we can assist too.

Recycling in Gloucester

Recycling is given a high priority in Gloucester and the county of Gloucestershire with collaborations such as Recycle for Gloucestershire working hard to promote its importance. This has undoubtedly raised the profile of recycling amongst the general public, making it increasingly important for companies to consider their responsibilities in terms of dealing with waste responsibly.

According to the latest figures Gloucester had a household waste recycling rate of 42.7%. Gloucester City Council collected 45,458 tons of rubbish from households in the region, of which 19,433 tons were sent for recycling, reuse, or composting. This is below the government’s target of 50% and less than Gloucestershire County Council, which achieved a recycling rate of 50.6%.

Local councils in Gloucester won’t collect and recycle waste from businesses in the cathedral city. However, we can help boost your green credentials and recycle many materials including plastics, cardboard and paper, and glass. Use a range of wheelie bins, front and rear end loaders, and balers to separate and store your recycling in Gloucester.

Daily, weekly, or fortnightly collections of your recycling are available. Everything is taken to a nearby waste recycling facility where it’s sorted, processed, and turned into recycled materials. Contact us online or call 0800 211 8390 for a free quote or to arrange recycling collections in Gloucester today.

Why use Business Waste for 
rubbish collection in Gloucester?

Effective waste management in Gloucester is essential to ensure all business rubbish is dealt with properly and doesn’t build up on the city’s streets. With around 375 businesses creating trade waste in the wider city centre alone, there’s a significant need for the type of comprehensive services we can offer.

Successful waste management strategies are vital to cope with the increasing waste Gloucester businesses create. This is thanks to the city’s regeneration, a regular influx of visitors, and a population that has grown by around 17,000 people to more than 127,000 in the last 15 years or so.

Many businesses don’t have the time or the resources to implement a high-quality refuse management plan. At Business Waste we’re specialists in rubbish removal in Gloucester, including the disposal, collection, and recycling of trade waste. We provide free bins, offer flexible collections, and avoid waste going to landfill where possible.

Gloucester waste FAQs

  • 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.

  • 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.
