Waste Collection

As well as collecting recycling, we have a shredding service for the disposal of confidential information, including customer files, patient information and financial details. All staff are trained in the correct handling of sensitive materials and the safety of your data is of paramount concern to us. Once shredded, paper will be taken for recycling with other office waste.

We are speedy and reliable, with a friendly and helpful team on hand at all times. We can provide wheelie bins for your premises or site, and we provide a collection schedule that suits what you need. The beautiful city of Peterborough stays clean and tidy thanks to everyone’s commitment to proper waste handling – including local companies.

Waste Disposal

If paper and card tend to build up in your office, we can collect it and send it for recycling. The same goes with many forms of plastics, from polyurethane to polystyrene, and also glass. Using local recycling centres in Peterborough, we ensure that all waste is correctly sorted and sent for reuse – reducing your company’s carbon footprint in the process. Not only does recycling help you to do your bit for the environment, but it can ensure that you are not hit with fines for improper rubbish disposal, while keeping down the cost of waste management. You will find that our solutions save you 20%, on average!


In 2014, Peterborough recycled 48% of its waste, bringing it close to the EU target of 50% recycled waste by 2020, but there is still much to do. Landfill tax can end up costing a small fortune, so it’s in the best interests of every business to reduce as much waste sent to landfill as possible. Additionally, reducing landfill waste will have untold benefits for the environment.

  • 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.

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.

  • How can we reduce our 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.
