Waste Management Scottish Borders

One of 32 council areas in Scotland, the Scottish Borders lies in close proximity to the Scottish capital Edinburgh and the north-eastern English city of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, making it a popular choice for commuters and businesses alike. While largely rural, the area contains the towns of Galashiels, Hawick, Peebles and Selkirk, all of which have a rich history when it comes to textiles and manufacturing. In total, the Scottish Borders has a population of approximately 118,000 people, putting it around halfway down the list of Scottish council areas. Business hotspots within the Scottish Borders include Channel Street, the major thoroughfare in Galashiels, and various knitwear manufacturers in Hawick, including Pringle and Johnston’s of Elgin.

The Scottish Borders encompasses a relatively large area – it’s larger in size than the English county of Lancashire – and, as you’d expect, there a variety of business recycling needs waiting to be fulfilled. Whether you’re one of Hawick’s famous knitwear companies, or you run one of the many independent shops in Peebles, you need a professional waste management company you can rely on. At Business Waste Ltd, we help businesses throughout the UK to collect and dispose of their waste in an environmentally-friendly manner. We collect all types of waste and offer free wheelie bins, so if you’re in Galashiels or Selkirk and you’re in need of a helping hand, give us a call.

Waste Disposal
Scottish Borders

Unfortunately, not all types of waste can be recycled, but if you are a business located in the Scottish border towns there are many types of trade waste which we will recycle. These include paper and cardboard, bricks, wood, building materials, green waste, soil and various forms of plastic which can be separated into 7 different categories: HDPE (milk bottles), LDPE (supermarket shopping bags), PET (drinks bottles), PP (butter containers), PS (takeaway packaging), PVC (cling film) and other different types.

Scottish Borders

The Scottish border towns and surrounding countryside have a reputation for their natural beauty. It is the services of companies like Business Waste which keep the countryside and the urban areas which it contains, litter free. Towns like Melrose and Eyemouth rely on friendly and effective waste management solutions from companies like Business Waste to dispose of their waste and keep the streets that surround their businesses clean and tidy.

You might be familiar with such attractions as the yearly Herring Queen Festival in Eyemouth. It is a day on which the town comes together to celebrate it’s history and look to the future. But it would be a dispiriting affair for all involved if there wasn’t a waste management program in place to keep the streets clean and ensure that all the festival goers continue to want to return year after year.

Business Waste

Similarly, the town of Peebles has been ranked by the New Economics Foundation as the best town in Scotland for a range of independent shops and ‘home town identity’. This accolade would hardly have been possible without the attention to good waste management provided by organisations like Business Waste. The town’s four major annual festivals- Beltane Festival, Peebles Arts Festival, Tweedlove Bike Festival and Imaginarium are likewise dependent on the good waste management practices of responsible companies like us.

Particularly for businesses experiencing periods of rapid growth, the problem of waste management can have a drastic impact on how they operate their businesses. If rubbish begins to pile up, potential customers can be put off from visiting your offices or shops and it can lead to a rapid downward spiral. Fortunately, Business Waste is in a position to tackle this issue head on with it’s large collection of waste management vehicles and experienced staff.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
