Bristol earned the title of European Green Capital in 2015 and surrounding this, many initiatives were put in place to ensure businesses were pulling their weight regarding being carbon neutral. With Edible Futures’ gardens in Castle Park and the setup of food waste social enterprises such as Skipchen, the city is awash with people and companies who are doing their bit for the environment. Many of these started before the city won the award, and have continued long after its reign!
To work towards carbon neutrality, households in Bristol have been given support from Bristol City Council. Unlike many other cities, it has a waste management system wherein household waste is collected fortnightly and recycling weekly. Turning the standard model on its head this way demonstrates Bristol’s commitment to a green future.
How we can help
Business waste is something of a different area, considering it has to be managed in adherence to strict legislation. When you store business waste it must be well covered, we can provide you with the correct wheelie bin for this. Add to this the rising costs of landfill waste and collection and disposal of business refuse can be both costly and time-consuming, as well as impacting on the environment.
Whatever your business and wherever you are, we offer recycling facilities for glass, cardboard, metal and plastic, and have experts who will consult you and assess your business waste needs, helping Bristol to stay green long after winning the title.
We offer business waste removal and disposal which is tailored specifically to your company and its needs. As part of the service, we will sort and separate, ensuring that as much as possible is recycled. Our passion is getting companies to zero waste or as close as possible, which means you can rest assured that your business waste is being reduced.
Please note: We’re unable to offer household waste collection or tipping services. Please see the residential waste hub section at the bottom of this page for help with this.
Business Waste offers commercial waste services for business and commercial organisations throughout the Bristol area.
Once your business waste has been collected, we will then go through it and reduce landfill accordingly. Absolutely anything that can be recycled will be sorted and taken to the appropriate facilities, helping Bristol to stay on top of its green objectives and giving your business peace of mind. Bristol has a commitment to reducing landfill at sites such as Shortwood Quarry, and here at Business Waste, we are pleased to do our bit to keep Avonmouth and the Severn as clean as possible.
Whilst Bristol council has a fantastic system for domestic refuse collection, it’s business waste strategy can be costly. Our services here at Business Waste include an on-site consultation to build a plan that suits your company and its refuse production. We can arrange a collection to suit you, your staff and your needs. As part of our service, we offer a bin, again selected to suit your needs. From the smallest 120l plastic-covered bins (helping to reduce litter spread from those pesky seagulls near the Harbourside) to full skips and roll tops, we offer a free bin with your collection. We won’t graffiti it for you, but in keeping with Bristol’s penchant for street art, we won’t lambaste you if you decide to decorate yours!

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%.
