No1 : Business Waste Kendal

Waste Management Kendal

For comprehensive trade waste services, Business Waste is the only name companies in Kendal need to know. Kendal is renowned as a picturesque tourism hub just a stone’s throw from Windermere and this means that there must be a high priority placed on responsible trade waste management. Tourists want to visit the area to taste some genuine mint cake or view the Grey Auld Town buildings but they don’t want to be wandering around knee-deep in rubbish. Fortunately, Business Waste is on hand to help deal with the waste created by the 29,000-strong resident population and the flocks of people who visit the Cumbrian town every week.

We can provide everything from wheelie bins and front-loading bins to skips and roll on and off containers to make waste disposal and collections as easy and streamlined as possible. We cover the whole of the town and the surrounding area, including the many tourist attractions in the area. It wouldn’t matter if we were called on to collect the waste from the Lakes Aquarium or The World of Beatrix Potter, we will always get the job done. We can tailor-make our collections and disposal services to meet the specific needs of your businesses, taking the waste management strain so you don’t have to.

Waste Disposal

The number of people who regularly flock to the Canal Head Recycling Centre indicates how important responsible waste disposal is in Kendal but business owners need a more industrial solution to their recycling needs. This is where Business Waste comes in. Whether you have a shop in The Westmoreland Centre or a unique business in Elephant Yard, we can handle all of your waste, including the complete spectrum of recyclables. We can offer regular and reliable collections for everything from paper and card to metal and plastics, as well as providing all of the receptacles and equipment you need to collect your waste.


Kendal is Cumbria’s third largest settlement after Carlisle and the town of Barrow-in-Furness and is just eight miles from Windermere. It is best known today as a tourist location but it is also renowned for its world-famous mint cake and the production of tobacco snuff and pipe tobacco. It is also home to a range of other businesses, including pump and turbine makers, baby milk manufacturers and paper makers James Cropper, which provides the paper used to make The Royal British legion’s Remembrance poppies. The town can also boast a significant design and IT sector, and it became A Fairtrade Town in 2003.

The area is also a retail hub and is home to The Westmoreland Centre with over 30 shops and businesses. It is the only covered shopping centre to be found within the South Lakes area and houses an indoor market, as well as an array of high-street brands, independent and speciality shops. With so much to offer, there is no surprise that so many people choose to live in or visit the area, and no surprise that vast amounts of waste is created each year. This waste must be collected and disposed of responsibly in order to maintain the attractiveness for which the area is renowned.

Business Waste

Recycling is also a priority in the area as South Lakeland celebrates the fact that 47 per cent of domestic waste is currently recycled. This means that businesses must keep up the recycling impetus being experienced in the area – helped by Business Waste, of course.

  • 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.
