Waste Management Kent

Business Waste Ltd is a commercial waste management company who can arrange waste collections from anywhere in Kent. With an increase in clinics and healthcare providers to the commutable offices, Kent creates a high amount of business waste. Legally, this must be taken to a transfer station for sorting and disposal.

Our highly trained team of experts will talk with your company and carry out a no-obligation assessment of your business waste storage and disposal requirements. There is a government-led ‘Duty of Care’, which has associated changing legislation. Part of our service is to track changes and report them to you, effectively staying on top of all elements of your business waste management.

Waste Collection

Since it has many different boroughs, from Thanet to Tunbridge, and Canterbury to Maidstone, domestic collections in Kent are varied. Since it is ‘The Garden of England’, residents in Kent think recycling is generally equal to general waste collection, with the exception of Thanet. The regulations for the collection and disposal of commercial waste differ. As such, when Business Waste Ltd creates your refuse collection schedule, we comply with legislation for you. Call us today to reduce your landfill costs and contributions.

Waste Disposal

Within the county, Kent has a fair domestic recycling programme, offering kerbside collection once a fortnight. Colour coded bins are provided for compost, refuse and recycling. Unfortunately, this service is not available for businesses, which is why companies such as Business Waste Ltd have been created. Passionate about recycling, we collect all commercial recycling, from paper and polystyrene to metal and glass. This is then sorted and sent to an official centre to be recycled, reducing landfill costs and expansion.


Often nicknamed the ‘Garden of England’, Kent is a diverse and huge county next to London. Famous for growing a variety of fruit, driving along the back roads of Paddock Wood or any other small township within the county, you may see cherries sold on the sides of the road. Encompassing the iconic white cliffs of Dover and the stunning market town of Tunbridge Wells, Kent’s landscape is a diverse distilled slice of England. Its position on the Thames River and location in the North Sea make it a county that not only reaches far and wide but also sometimes suffers from the ubiquitous seagulls which lurk in its seaside towns and scatter rubbish and refuse around quaint villages.

With a population of almost 1.5 million, it is the most populous county in England, as well as being one of the warmest. With a rich history, the county is home to a famous cathedral at Canterbury. Here, there is still an Archbishop, a position which dates back to the times of St. Augustine in 597. This Saint was the one who successfully converted Viking rival Pagan King Aethelbert to Christianity, changing England’s religious focus.

With high chalky cliffs, pebbled beaches, sandy beaches and a distance of only 34km to France, Kent has an ever-changing coastline, with small towns scattered around it. Kent’s proximity to London and close communities make it somewhere that takes its recycling and litter picking seriously. The individual boroughs issue waste management bins for domestic customers. However, business waste needs to be removed by a licensed company and a duty paid on its disposal at landfill sites.

Our wide-ranging national coverage means we provide local services at the best prices, whatever your company requires. If you’re looking for the best value and most reliable recycling and waste management company in the country, we’re only a phone call away, and ready to respond to your needs.

  • 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.

  • Do you collect any type of 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.
