Recycling in London is important to look after the environment and work towards the city’s recycling targets. Currently the recycling rate for London households is only 33%, while the non-household recycling rate is 48% – balancing out at 41%. This is below the national average and short of the 50% household waste recycling goal for 2030.
The mayor of London has also set a target of 65% recycling by 2030 in the London Environment Strategy – meaning non-household recycling needs to be around 75% by 2030. Businesses in the capital can do their part to help achieve this by ensuring as much commercial waste as possible is recycled.
We can provide free bins to separate and store your rubbish in individual recycling streams. Take the responsibility out of your hands and allow us to assist with your business waste management by collecting and recycling your waste correctly.

We can advise on whether your waste is recyclable and ensure as much as possible is recycled to help London work towards a greener future.
Cardboard recycling in London
Recycling cardboard in London is important for all businesses as it’s a commonly used material and highly recyclable. Companies in every industry create cardboard waste in London from old packaging, storage boxes, food containers, and even toilet rolls. Such cardboard can be recycled numerous times, though the fibres shorten to a point beyond recovery.
Cardboard recycling in London is easy and 70 per cent of what comes to Bywaters’ East London recycling centre is paper or cardboard by weight. Different grades of cardboard can be recycled together, as long as the contents remain clean and dry. We provide cardboard collection in London for all types and amounts of waste cardboard across the capital city.

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 the Business Waste customer care team based in the UK?
Do you offer flexible waste collections?
We realise that your waste collection needs may change as your business grows, seasons change, and demand for your products or services fluctuate. Alongside offering daily, weekly, and fortnightly collections, you can add more, different types, or bigger bins to your services and adapt the frequency of collections.
Contact us today if you want to change your waste collections.
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.
