Waste Management Torquay

Why worry about trade waste management in Torquay when Business Waste can do the job for you? Whether you are one of the many businesses catering to the English Riviera’s thriving tourism industry, a care home or service provider offering care to the many elderly people who choose to call Torquay home, looking after the many delegates and sporting teams who visit the area to attend conferences and events, or a business dedicated to the local or global community, we are on hand to offer a range of waste management services, including free wheelie bins, tailor-made collections and environmentally-friendly disposal of all types of trade waste and recyclables.

People living in the Torbay area know a thing about waste collections and recycling – Paignton, which sits in the centre of the Bay, is the home of the annual Plant and Waste Recycling Show, affectionately known as the bin lorry convention amongst locals, after all. But, whilst Paignton Green becomes a hub of waste management activity each summer, that doesn’t mean that Torbay businesses have the time to spend too long on their own waste collection needs, especially in the height of the summer tourist season when thousands of people flock to the area to enjoy the delights of Paignton, Brixham and the Bay’s major town.

Waste Disposal

You only need to see the number of different wheelie bins and recycling boxes outside the average property in the town and the wider area of Torbay, along with the activity that always surrounds the Tor Park Road Recycling Centre in Paignton, to know that this is an area that takes its recycling very seriously. In fact, it is widely accepted that the area of Torbay has long-had one of the most rigid set of recycling regulations to be found anywhere in the country, meaning that businesses absolutely must take their recycling responsibilities seriously. To make this as hassle-free as possible, Business Waste can shoulder the recycling burden, handling all types of recyclable waste, including cardboard and paper, glass, plastics, garden and building waste and scrap metal. We can also ensure that businesses have the right receptacles to make achieving their recycling aims easier than ever.


Torquay is the best-known town in the English Riviera and is packed with businesses catering to the young and old. From the pubs and clubs found around the harbour area and town centre to the likes of the Harbour Amusements on Victoria Parade, the unique businesses of Fleet Walk or the big name brands of The Willows, there are thousands of businesses catering to both the booming tourism industry and the local population – and creating tons of trade waste every year.

Torbay is famous for many things, including being home to a popular steam railway and zoo and a range of other tourist attractions such as Kent’s Cavern, Babbacombe Model Village and Paignton Pier, but it is also well known for its commitment to recycling. Last year, it achieved a recycling rate of almost 43 per cent.

Business Waste

The population of just over 123,000 people, living in 65,620 households, produced just over 56,000 tonnes of waste over the year from 2015 to 2016, and more than 14,000 tonnes was recycled or composted. This scale of waste production and the commitment to recycling already demonstrated by people in the area, highlights why Business Waste services in the Torbay area are so necessary and beneficial.

  • 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.
