Business Waste are specialists in delivering affordable and effective waste management in Gravesend. We have all of the expertise and experience needed to help businesses which require efficient waste disposal services, regular and reliable trade waste collections and assistance to ensure that as much waste as possible is recycled to benefit the local area, its resident businesses, and the wider environment.

Visitors are attracted to the area to see Gravesend Town Pier, which was built in 1834 and is the oldest surviving example of its kind in the world. The pier is the site of a pontoon to allow medium and small craft to land and to the terminal of the Gravesend to Tilbury Ferry. Thanks to ongoing investment in the area and the town’s popularity as a commuter hub, there is no shortage of demand for businesses and services in the area. This means that there is also no shortage of trade waste being created, which needs to be dealt with responsibly to ensure the area stays looked after for generations to come.

Waste Disposal

Gravesend is part of the Borough of Gravesham. This once had one of Britain’s worst recycling rates but a £4.9 million project has worked to transform it into one of Kent’s best. In the past, just 23 per cent of waste was recycled but this had shot up to 38 per cent by the start of 2015. This new-found commitment to recycling means that it is essential for local businesses to fulfil their own environmental obligations and to appeal to customers who are increasingly using recycling rates and green credentials as a differentiator when choosing between companies. Business Waste can ensure that this is as easy as possible for local businesses to achieve by offering efficient ways of collecting waste and services to deal with a wide range of recyclable materials from paper and plastics to glass and WEEE waste.


Gravesend has undergone substantial regeneration since the High Speed 1 or Channel Tunnel Rail Link opened in 2007 to link Britain with Continental Europe. It is a popular home for Thames Gateway commuters and has a current population of over 66,000 people with an above-average population density of around ten people for each hectare of land. Its business focus used to be aimed at heavy industry but today revolves around the service industries.

The town offers all of the facilities expected of a popular local shopping district, including large stores and independent shops. These are complemented by a market hall which only closes for one day each week and a farmers’ market. Members of Thames tugboat crews traditionally live in the town, which is also home to the headquarters of the Port of London Authority Control Centre, which used to be called the Thames Navigation Service and plays a vital role in Thames shipping navigation.

  • 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.
