Waste Collection

The town prides itself on having more than 100 playground and parks, as well as five miles of riverside paths. Facilities such as Forbury Gardens in the centre and Prospect Park wouldn’t be so appealing, however, if they were covered in rubbish. This is one of the reasons why it is so important for local business to go further than just having a few bins and to establish a good waste management strategy – with the help of our waste management Reading experts, of course. We can ensure that rubbish build-up is never an issue by supplying the right wheelie bins and containers, organising timely collections and organising responsible disposal of every kind of trade waste.

Waste Disposal

Business Waste can ensure that as much commercial and trade waste as possible is recycled in the town centre and as far away as some of the more outlying suburbs such as Calcot, Purley, Whitley, Tilehurst, Whitley Wood, Woodley, Lower Early, Caversham Heights, Caversham Park and Emmer Green. We can deal with all types of recyclable materials (cardboard, plastic, metal etc) from all kinds of businesses, whether they are huge town residents such as Microsoft, Hubu and ING Direct or one of the hundreds of retailers and service providers in Broad Street, The Oracle, Street Mall, the Bristol and West Arcade, The Walk or Harris Arcade.


Reading is a thriving commercial hub with a particular attraction for insurance and information technology businesses. Despite its closeness to London, many people commute into the town to work, rather than out of it. It has been ranked as Britain’s best performing area in terms of wellbeing and economic success, looking at factors such as skills, income, health and employment, and, with its population of around 233,000, it is the biggest settlement in Britain that doesn’t have city status.

There are obviously vast numbers of businesses catering for the needs of the local population and a far wider customer base, and many companies must also deal with the influx of visitors for special events such as home games for the London Irish rugby union team or Reading Football Club, and the town’s Half Marathon.

Bigger still is the Reading Festival, which is one of the country’s most popular music festivals. The festival is held every year on Richfield Avenue’s Little John’s farm in the central Reading area, close to the Caversham Bridge. It is the oldest continuing pop music festival in the world and has hosted vast numbers of world-class stars since it started out as the National Jazz Festival in 1961.

Business Waste

Anyone who has ever been to a music festival knows how much rubbish can be created in a short amount of time and this gives an idea of the scale of waste management issues faced, not just by event managers, but by the wider business community.

  • 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.
