More than 2,000 people responded to our poll , asking what smells offended their noses the most.
Among the top ten were the smell of babies’ nappies, rotting food, and the pong from a wet dog, while people also came up with a number of more unusual answers.
Some of the popular responses are awful and pretty much as expected but who knew there was somebody out there who was offended by air fresheners?”

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!
