Here at Business Waste UK, we understand the difficulties that the retail sector has in managing their day to day retail waste. Whether you’re a small convenience store in a rural village or a larger outfit in a shopping centre, you will still need to effectively and economically manage your retail waste.
Retailers end up with various kinds of recyclable waste that could be harmful to their immediate surroundings as well as the environment at large. As a responsible retailer, you should know the sources of the waste coming from your retail stores and warehouses, as well as the final place it ends up.
Every business and organisation in the UK needs a waste management plan. For retail businesses, a waste management plan will ensure all waste created is deposed of in the correct way and ensures efficient waste management systems are in place. A waste management system can identify areas where businesses are creating excess waste and reduce the amount of waste a retail business contributes to landfill.
Technically, there is no legal requirement for a retail business to have an SWMP, but introducing and maintaining one has numerous benefits for a business. For example, a business will be able to reduce costs by planning the most efficient waste management systems and increase their profits by using an SWMP to look at where they can reduce waste.
In 2015, the UK government introduced new UK waste regulations that asked businesses to separate their recyclable materials, from their non-recyclable materials. For example, businesses were required to have separate bins for their paper, plastic and glass waste. These regulations were introduced to help the UK increase its recycling efforts.
On the other hand, a retail shop with a positive green reputation is seen as trustworthy by the consumer and will be able to build a positive reputation easily.

Service is really good, had many problems in the past with previous suppliers however since been with Business Waste I have not had any problems what so ever. From the start of the agreement the sales team was really helpful and helped with my requirements. I am in a very tricky location with not much room to store a container however I was provided with many options from the sales rep to accommodate my requirements. Customer Service from the staff is outstanding. Definitely recommend 100%.
Great friendly service and really helpful staff!
