Business Waste is here to help your Swansea business manage the collections, disposal and recycling of your trade waste. We operate on a number of routes throughout Swansea and the surrounding areas. We can offer your business free wheelie bins, regular collections and the disposal of all kinds of waste – from clinical to food, retail to agricultural. We also pride ourselves on achieving 0% landfill and can help your business work towards achieving an improved green status within the Swansea community.
It is important to ensure your waste is collected consistently and efficiently in order to comply legally with your duty of care, and to ensure your workplace does not become hazardous in terms of health and safety. Business Waste can help your business meet these requirements at competitive prices. We can also add in additional collections if required to ensure your waste doesn’t ever build up and become a problem.
Swansea Waste Management
Sat on the sandy south-west Welsh coast, Swansea is the second largest city within Wales after Cardiff. It’s also classed as the 25th largest city in the whole of the United Kingdom. In 2014 it was found to have a population of 241,300. In 2011, when the city, metropolitan and urban areas were all combined together, the census concluded there were a total of 462,000 residents.
Since 2011, Swansea has begun an expansion into becoming a larger region known as the ‘Swansea Bay City Region’. This move has seen a number of councils coming together, including Tenby and other areas in west Wales. With the added areas, it is thought the population will rise to over 685,000. This region will be led by chairman, Sir Terry Matthews, who is working towards boosting the economy and helping the area become more profitable.
During the 19th-century, Swansea was a notable location for the copper industry. Nowadays, visitors may visit The Grand Theatre (launched in 1897), the Palace Theatre (from 1888), or on occasion, the National Eisteddfod festival. Additionally, many seek to try the Local Gower salt marsh lamb, cockles and laverbread sourced from in and around the Loughor estuary. There are also a number of listed buildings in Swansea, including Swansea Castle, the Tabernacle Chapel and the Swansea Guildhall.
In 2014, Swansea jumped from sitting as 20th out of 22 local areas when it came to recycling, to 10th – in just one year. In the second quarter of the year, Swansea had recycled 59.54% of the waste collected. The dramatic changes illustrated the desire overall to improve waste management in Swansea. The goal for the local area is to be recycling 70% of all waste by 2025.
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 Swansea area.

We understand that you don’t have time for worrying about separating all your recyclables though, and we offer an efficient and knowledgable service that ensures your recycling issues are all solved in a quick and easy way.

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!
