Waste Disposal

In order to improve Lewisham’s recycling rate, which, unfortunately, came bottom of the list in London as recently as 2015, we have a variety of easy and effective waste management solutions available. For example, we supply bins that allow recyclables to be separated from other forms of waste, while our trained professionals are capable of arranging collections as often as necessary with minimal disruption to daily operations.


The area of Lewisham is one of 35 major centres in Greater London with a population of nearly 100,000. Along with numerous transport links connecting it to the south of the capital, Lewisham also boasts the largest police station in Europe. Its commercial district is also one of the largest in the area, while ambitious regeneration plans look set to transform the fortunes of the London Borough of Lewisham.

One of the biggest contributors to the local economy is Lewisham Shopping Centre, home to 70 stores spread across 330,000 square feet. Notable high-street retailers include Marks & Spencer, W H Smith, Sainsburys, and H&M. However, ever since the Docklands Light Railway extension reached Lewisham, the local market and high street has enjoyed an increase in customers too, helping independent enterprises capitalise on the area’s increased prosperity.

Business Waste

New plans to develop three major sites on Loampit Vale could help the town centre rival the likes of Bromley, Croydon and Kingston upon Thames when it comes to business and job creation. The first is the Renaissance development featuring high-rise apartment blocks along with the new Glass Mill leisure centre. The second is Lewisham Gateway, which has already witnessed the construction of two residential buildings and is close to completing a new road network. Last but not least, Thurston Road industrial estate will be a mixed-use site for residential and commercial buildings.

But in spite of such promising plans for both residential and commercial development, Lewisham must come up with ways to effectively manage its waste disposal and recycling responsibilities, which are bound to increase with the rapid development occurring in the area.

  • 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.
