Nottingham recycling

In Nottingham household waste recycling rates are only around 24%, which is below the national average and 2035 government target of 65%. While domestic recycling rates may be low, Nottingham is a leader in keeping its landfill levels down as the city only sends around 8% of household waste to landfill.

This impressive figure is mainly due to the amount of waste that’s sent to the Eastcroft incinerator to capture energy. It’s a step in the right direction but increasing the amount of recycling in Nottingham by both households and businesses will further help keep the former home of Robin Hood as green as Sherwood Forest.

Business Waste are on hand to help improve commercial recycling in Nottingham. We can provide a wide range of free bins to make separating your waste into recyclable streams easy and convenient. Our licensed waste carriers then transport it all to a local Nottingham recycling centre to reduce the amount going to landfill – saving you money on landfill tax.

  • What regulations and guidelines are in place for commercial waste management in Nottingham?

    The same regulations and guidelines for the rest of the UK for commercial waste management also apply in Nottingham. Under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 all businesses have a duty of care to ensure commercial waste they create is managed, removed, and disposed of safely, legally, and in a responsible manner.

    Nottinghamshire County Council provides trade waste advice that includes paying for a private waste collector, such as Business Waste. There’s also the Nottinghamshire County Council-approved trader scheme to help local companies find responsible partners to help with their waste management.

    Commercial waste is not accepted at recycling centres across Nottinghamshire. You may be asked to complete a disclaimer form when visiting a recycling centre in Nottingham. This is to state that all waste you’re disposing of is household rubbish and not from a business.

  • How can businesses in Nottingham reduce waste?

    Around 40,000 tonnes of non-household waste is produced in Nottingham every year with the majority of this commercial waste. Some of this is recycled and reused but minimising waste helps save energy and lower emissions involved in transportation and processing. Businesses in Nottingham can reduce waste in a few ways:

    • Form a waste management plan to deal with every type of waste your organisation generates effectively. It must include steps for storing, removing, and disposing of all commercial waste you create.
    • Use different bins to make separating recyclable rubbish and other waste types quick and easy at the point of production – like for paper and cardboard recycling.
    • Try to reuse materials in other areas of your business or donate to local charities in Nottingham if in a usable condition.
    • Ban all single-use plastics like disposable cups and cutlery across your organisation in Nottingham.
    • Educate your employees about why minimising waste is vital to improve the local Nottingham environment and help your business save money and improve its reputation.
  • Are there any recycling and sustainability initiatives or programs in Nottingham?

    Nottingham aims to become the first carbon-neutral city in the country by 2028. To achieve this target Nottingham City Council has introduced a range of initiatives to enhance sustainability across the city:

    • Hello Nottingham – there are signs around Nottingham with scannable QR codes that encourage residents to message about their opinions and experiences about climate change.
    • We Support – organisations in Nottingham city can sign up and pledge to reduce carbon emissions and provide updates on their progress.
    • Reduce, Reuse, Recycling Fund – not-for-profit community groups, schools, and charities in Nottinghamshire (excluding Nottingham) can apply for grants of up to £1,000 to enhance their recycling initiatives.
  • What options are available for hazardous waste disposal in Nottingham?

    Collection and disposal of hazardous waste in a safe, legal, and environmentally friendly manner is possible anywhere in Nottingham and the wider county with Business Waste. Licensed waste carriers will remove any type and amount of hazardous waste materials, such as clinical waste, chemical waste, and WEEE waste. It’s transported to a waste management facility for safe disposal.

    A wide range of options are available to store hazardous waste safely on-site in Nottingham. We provide free bins and containers such as barrels and drums, IBC containers, and more to hold all sorts of hazardous waste types. You only pay for the collection, and you receive a free duty of care certificate confirming the safe and legal disposal of your hazardous waste.

  • How can Nottingham businesses improve their recycling rates?

    There are many things businesses in Nottingham can do to improve their recycling rates. Increasing how much waste is recycled in Nottingham rather than being disposed of with general waste reduces how much landfill tax you pay, helps tackle pollution levels, and moves Nottingham closer to its carbon-neutral target.

    To improve your commercial recycling rates in Nottingham:

    • Start a recycling program onsite with individual bins to separate and recycle paper, plastic, cardboard, glass, and dry mixed recycling.
    • Explain the importance of recycling and reducing waste at your business to lower waste disposal costs and benefit the city of Nottingham.
    • Partner with a professional waste management company operating in the Nottingham area to collect and recycle your waste, avoiding it going to landfill.
    • Regularly review your waste production, storage, and collection to identify any problems and opportunities to improve your recycling.
    • Use recyclable materials for your packaging, products, and anything else to ensure as much as possible is reused.
  • What are the consequences of non-compliance with waste management regulations in Nottingham?

    Organisations in Nottingham that fail to manage their commercial waste in line with the relevant regulations may face fines, penalties, and/or legal action. Unsafe and improper storage, removal, and disposal can invoke a breach of the duty of care under section 34 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

    Any breach or non-compliance can be financially damaging and affect your business’ reputation. It could lead to a loss of customers, sponsorship, and partnerships if people and other businesses think your company isn’t green. Use licensed waste carriers and professional waste management companies to ensure compliance with waste management regulations in Nottingham.
