Waste Disposal

In 2009/10, 45% of household waste in Mid Sussex was sent for reuse, recycling or composting; this dropped to 44% in 2010/11. For West Sussex, this was 43% in 09/10 and 44% the year after, and for East Sussex, it was 37% in 09/10, increasing by a percentage in 10/11.

There is still more work to be done in Sussex to improve the county’s recycling levels. There are huge benefits to local businesses in terms of saving costs and improving green credentials; Business Waste can provide you with the bins, guidance, and expert services that ensure you’re recycling where possible. We can help you recycle cardboard, glass, paper, food waste, green waste and soil, metal, various types of plastic including milk bottles, takeaway packaging and clingfilm, plus bricks, wood, and other building materials.


A rural and historic county within south east England, Sussex is made up of densely populated coastal plains along the county edge, rolling chalk hills in the South Downs, and wooded areas throughout Sussex Weald. In 2011 the population was at 1,609,500.

It is thought that the ‘Kingdom of Sussex’ was first established in AD 477 and it has since been home to a number of historic events, including Roman invasions and the Battle of Hastings.

Rich in culture and history, Sussex is bordered in the west by Hampshire. To the north sits Surrey, Kent lies in the north east and to the south is the English Channel. The local government has divided Sussex up into East Sussex, West Sussex, as well as the city of Brighton and Hove. Sussex is also home to the city of Chichester.

In 2014, Sussex was one of the worst performers in the UK for recycling. Since then, the county has been working hard to establish better practices when it comes to waste reduction and waste management.

Business Waste

Advice is given out throughout the county about ways to reduce unnecessary waste, including reducing your impact on the environment with your packed lunch (e.g. wrap sandwiches in reusable bags and use a flask instead of buying new plastic bottles each day) and cutting down on junk mail.

There are around 21 billion items sent out each year in direct mail, door-to-door adverts, and newspaper inserts – equating to approximately 550,000 tonnes of paper. Sussex is aiming to cut down on this to help protect the planet, and it is something your business can likewise start to curb in an attempt to save paper waste.

  • 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.

  • 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.
