Waste Management Plymouth

Business Waste offer a range of waste management solutions for businesses in Plymouth. Without regular rubbish collections, waste can quickly accumulate and create a hazard to workers. Things like clinical waste and food waste are unhygienic and can create unpleasant smells – by removing this waste quickly and efficiently, Business Waste ensures that there is never a problem to deal with. Complying with local regulations on waste handling in Plymouth can also earn tax breaks and other incentives for the company, so it is always worth doing your bit and arranging to recycle all commercial waste properly with us.

As part of the radical urban redevelopment recently launched by Plymouth City Council and Plymouth Chamber of Commerce, the city is due to increase its population with 33,000 new dwellings, a cruise terminal, shopping centres and a boulevard. This boom means Plymouth needs to work even harder to establish efficient waste management.

Waste Disposal

We all need to do our bit for the planet, so make a commitment to recycle regularly and stay on the right side of government regulations. Recycling of waste ensures that reusable materials are kept and sorted, while perishable waste is sent to landfill. It lessens the impact on the environment, cuts demand for non-sustainable materials and prevents unnecessary waste.

Business Waste offers recycling services for a wide range of materials, including paper and card, plastic and glass. We can also collect hazardous waste, trade waste, clinical waste and garden waste. Depending on the nature of your business, we can provide safe and secure rubbish collection bins and create a regular waste disposal plan that suits you and your company. All materials will be handled safely by trained professionals and disposed of correctly at a registered recycling facility within the Plymouth area.


If you need commercial waste management services in Plymouth, trust Business Waste to get the job done for you. We provide a comprehensive range of waste collection and disposal services for offices, schools, healthcare facilities, building sites, manufacturing plants and many other industry types in the area.

The city of Plymouth is located within the county of Devon, and it is close to other business cities such as London, Exeter and Portsmouth. It relies on coastal operations, along with heavy industry and retail. There are also hundreds of office-based companies, as well as several universities and colleges. Managing waste is not likely to be your favourite job, but it is an essential one. Studies show that a quarter of all waste is generated by businesses, and that thousands of tonnes of rubbish are created each year by commercial operations. In Plymouth, there are public services and hundreds of companies operating in and around the city centre, all needing waste services to keep things running smoothly. We are here to assist with waste management in Plymouth.

Plymouth is a city on the south coast of beautiful Devon. It is a fairly large city with a population of 264,200. It lies between the mouth of two rivers: the Tamar and the Plym. During the industrial revolution, the town was an important commercial shipping port, and the port is still active today, both as a destination for ferries to Brittany and as a major shipbuilding economy. Plymouth also has the largest operational naval base in Western Europe. The University of Plymouth is a large university, requiring waste management. The city centre has a large pedestrianised retail area. The two main industrial estates are Parkway and Ernesettle, each containing a large variety of businesses both commercial and industrial.

  • 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.

  • 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.
