Business Waste specialises in trade waste collection and disposal in Kingston-Upon-Thames. We collect all kinds of commercial waste and make sure it is disposed of in the most environmentally friendly way possible. We’re a nationwide business, but we employ teams local to your area, meaning our staff know the borough and its local waste disposal facilities.
We’re more than just a waste collection company though. We offer all of our clients a waste audit, so we can work together on the best waste management solution possible. We can even offer legal advice, so our clients are fully up to date on the regulations for business owners in the Greater London area.
Kingston-Upon-Thames Waste Management
The town of Kingston-Upon-Thames became part of Greater London in 1965. According to the census of 2011, the town has a population of 43,013 people.
Situated on the banks of the river Thames, Kingston was known for much of the twentieth century as a major site for aircraft manufacture, hosting factories which produced some of Britain’s most iconic fighter planes. Now, pubs, bars and restaurants make up a substantial part of the businesses in the town. Retail is another huge part of Kingston’s economy. 2010 retail footprint research ranked Kingston-Upon-Thames in 25th place nationally for retail expenditure, and fifth in the Greater London region.
Its location is seeing it grow rapidly as a popular destination for both visitors and residents. Although within the Greater London area and enjoying the fast transport connections to the city centre, Kingston’s isolated riverside location means its scenic river walks and quiet streets offer an escape from the frantic city. The diverse combination of bars and restaurants, along with the town’s rich cultural life which includes the Rose Theatre and several small music venues, have seen it become increasingly popular as a commuter location for those working in central London.
Recycling and waste disposal have proved something of a problem in the area in recent years. Last January, the number of recycling collections made each month were halved. In January 2014, it was also revealed that half of the waste being sent to landfill in Kingston could have been recycled instead. This is where Business Waste can help. Our tailored waste management solutions focus on recycling a range of materials to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill.
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 Kingston-Upon-Thames area.
Kingston-Upon-Thames recycled just 46.3% of its waste in 2013-14. Although an impressive amount and the EU target is 50%, it was still far below that recycled by the table topping South Oxfordshire District (65.7%).
Business Waste can help local businesses reduce their environmental impact. There is only one recycling centre in Kingston, on Chapel Mill Road, and that only deals with household waste. Our local drivers know the nearest and best places to take your recyclable trade waste so it can be dealt with responsibly and in an environmentally friendly way.
The borough is a lively and vibrant community. Our collections service is capable of accommodating all kinds of trade waste, whether from bars on RiversideWalk or boutique clothes shops, to keep the town looking good. Business Waste will provide you with the bin or container you need for your waste disposal, whether it’s a simple wheelie bin or a skip. Once we’ve worked with you on a waste management plan for your business, we’ll fulfil it punctually and reliably. Once collected, our expert crews will sort the waste into recyclable and non-recyclable. Following our zero landfill policy, we’ll then make sure it’s disposed of in the cleanest, safest way possible.

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!
