Harlow Waste 

Harlow is a first-generation new town, built in Essex immediately after WWII to house bombed-out families from London and cope with the post-war population expansion.

Always intended to be self-sufficient in terms of employment, shopping and business, the town had two industrial estates that attracted electronics and pharmaceutical companies as well as light engineering firms, manufacturers and publishers.

Despite that intention, it became more of a commuter town in the 1980s thanks to its excellent transport links. Trains go north to Cambridge and south to Liverpool Street, linking with Jubilee line stations on the way. The London to Cambridge M11 motorway also passes to the east of the town and the A414, the main trunk road leading east-west through Essex and Hertfordshire, runs through it.

Around half of Templefields, the industrial estate on the north-east of the town by the Hertfordshire border, is now given over to retail. The other, Pinnacles, has remained commercial, with industrial, technical, scientific and office space alongside warehousing.

At the heart of the town, a large retail space attracts shoppers from a large catchment area. The original town centre, including the UK’s first pedestrian precinct, was built mostly in the 60s and is now in the process of being redeveloped. On the eastern edge of the town, a new enterprise zone is being built on the site of the former Standard Telecommunications Laboratories, where fibre-optic cables were first developed. All this industry and redevelopment is great news for the area but means that this town can expect to see trade waste grow over the coming years.

Waste disposal 

The larger businesses on the two industrial estates have multiple waste disposal needs but there are also smaller groups of light industrial and retail units around the town, such as Staple Tye and Bush Fair. Retail premises create a large amount of packaging waste although much of it can now be recycled. Paper, cardboard and glass form the bulk of that, as well as plastics. At Business Waste, we can take care of your recycling needs so that you can prioritise your business.

Waste collection

Law requires that all commercial waste must be covered and stored for no more than three days. We can offer a tailor made schedule for collections, which considers your needs as a business. We will then provide you with all the necessary paperwork and wheelie bins to demonstrate your compliance. Business Waste Ltd’s collections will be scheduled to suit you and ensure you adhere to legislation. We will collect from areas including Barham, Claydon and East Bergholt. Our work helps to keep Ipswich looking fabulous and reduce refuse sent to landfill to benefit the environment.

  • 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.
