Museum waste 

It’s essential that you provide the right kind and size of bins across your museum or art gallery to safely store all types of waste produced. This makes it easy for both staff and visitors to get rid of their waste and ensure as much as possible goes for recycling.

There are all sorts of bins suitable for the leisure industry. The right ones usually depend on the size of your museum or gallery and its facilities – such as whether you need any food and glass only waste bins or just those for general waste, dry mixed recycling, or any specific waste streams.

Explore some common waste bins used in museums, art galleries, and other leisure facilities.

Museum waste 

At Business Waste, we offer collections to suit you – daily, weekly, or fortnightly. The best schedule will depend on your footfall, the amount of waste you generate, sizes and number of bins you use. We’re flexible too, so you can adapt your collections based on seasonality and other factors.

We provide free bins for any museum, gallery, or leisure service that we work with – you just pay for collection. If you’re unsure about the right bins for your operations, just get in touch and we can organise a free waste audit today. One of our experts will assess your operations and advise on the best options for you.

After delivery of your bins, simply fill them up with the relevant waste type and within any weight limits. Then our licensed waste carriers will come and collect at an agreed time and accessible pickup point. They’ll transport your waste to a nearby disposal facility based on its type – recycling as much as possible to avoid landfill.

Types of museum 
and gallery waste

Museums and art galleries produce a wide range of waste types in their daily activities. From rubbish thrown away by visitors that they’ve brought in from outside, to that produced by vendors and other facilities on your premises, it can be quite a variety. Each waste type requires its own storage and disposal methods.

This can make managing leisure industry waste complex, but we’re experienced in handling all types of waste. Our professional teams will make sure that you’re fully compliant with the relevant waste disposal regulations, providing a full paper trail as standard. Understanding different waste types helps ensure you have the right bins in place.
