Waste disposal in Leicester

At Business Waste we aim to send as little waste to landfill for disposal in Leicester as possible. Recycling rubbish and opting for other disposal methods helps protect the environment and saves your company money on its waste management costs as you’ll pay less landfill tax for your waste disposal in Leicester.

The likes of cardboard, glass, and paper are recycled where possible. Even non-recyclable rubbish such as food waste might be sent for composting or anaerobic digestion, which keeps it out of landfill. Complex waste like hazardous, sanitary, and clinical waste will be disposed of in line with relevant regulations (including incineration).

For all waste disposal in Leicester, you receive a free duty of care certificate. This confirms the disposal method and shows that your waste was managed and disposed of in a safe, legal, and responsible manner. Enjoy peace of mind that all types and amounts of rubbish are disposed of responsibly anywhere in Leicester with Business Waste.

Recycling in Leicester

Leicester has a household waste recycling rate of 35.7%, which is below the national average. The area has collections and orange bags for recycling domestic waste, but like most cities, commercial waste needs to be taken to an appropriate facility by a registered waste disposal company such as Business Waste.

We can help your organisation improve its recycling in Leicester by providing free bins to help separate your waste. This includes wheelie bins for glass recycling, cardboard, paper, plastic, and dry mixed recycling – as well as containers for metal, wood, and other recyclable rubbish. Balers and compactors are also available to store high volumes of dry recycling.

Recycling in Leicester helps protect the local environment and saves your organisation money as you’ll pay less landfill tax. Use the right types, sizes, and number of bins to separate your recyclable rubbish streams and do your bit to help keep the city as green as Abbey Park.

Reliable waste removal in Leicester

Organise regular and reliable waste removal in Leicester for your business. Save time and stress knowing your rubbish will be removed regularly to avoid overflowing bins and unhygienic conditions developing on your site. Choose between daily, weekly, and fortnightly waste removal in Leicester for each bin you use.

Combine the best collection schedule with the right number and sizes of bins for cost-effective waste management. For example, a restaurant in Leicester might want its food waste removed daily while cardboard could be collected weekly. Fill each bin with the right waste type and place it at the pickup point before the collection time.

Licensed waste carriers will remove your bins on time so you can enjoy peace of mind that all your commercial waste is taken care of properly.

  • 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.
