Waste Management Torquay

Why worry about trade waste management in Torquay when Business Waste can do the job for you? Whether you are one of the many businesses catering to the English Riviera’s thriving tourism industry, a care home or service provider offering care to the many elderly people who choose to call Torquay home, looking after the many delegates and sporting teams who visit the area to attend conferences and events, or a business dedicated to the local or global community, we are on hand to offer a range of waste management services, including free wheelie bins, tailor-made collections and environmentally-friendly disposal of all types of trade waste and recyclables.

Torquay Waste Management

Torquay is the best-known town in the English Riviera and is packed with businesses catering to the young and old. From the pubs and clubs found around the harbour area and town centre to the likes of the Harbour Amusements on Victoria Parade, the unique businesses of Fleet Walk or the big name brands of The Willows, there are thousands of businesses catering to both the booming tourism industry and the local population – and creating tons of trade waste every year.

Torbay is famous for many things, including being home to a popular steam railway and zoo and a range of other tourist attractions such as Kent’s Cavern, Babbacombe Model Village and Paignton Pier, but it is also well known for its commitment to recycling. Last year, it achieved a recycling rate of almost 43 per cent.

The population of just over 123,000 people, living in 65,620 households, produced just over 56,000 tonnes of waste over the year from 2015 to 2016, and more than 14,000 tonnes was recycled or composted. This scale of waste production and the commitment to recycling already demonstrated by people in the area, highlights why Business Waste services in the Torbay area are so necessary and beneficial.

People living in the Torbay area know a thing about waste collections and recycling – Paignton, which sits in the centre of the Bay, is the home of the annual Plant and Waste Recycling Show, affectionately known as the bin lorry convention amongst locals, after all. But, whilst Paignton Green becomes a hub of waste management activity each summer, that doesn’t mean that Torbay businesses have the time to spend too long on their own waste collection needs, especially in the height of the summer tourist season when thousands of people flock to the area to enjoy the delights of Paignton, Brixham and the Bay’s major town.

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.

You only need to see the number of different wheelie bins and recycling boxes outside the average property in the town and the wider area of Torbay, along with the activity that always surrounds the Tor Park Road Recycling Centre in Paignton, to know that this is an area that takes its recycling very seriously. In fact, it is widely accepted that the area of Torbay has long-had one of the most rigid set of recycling regulations to be found anywhere in the country, meaning that businesses absolutely must take their recycling responsibilities seriously. To make this as hassle-free as possible, Business Waste can shoulder the recycling burden, handling all types of recyclable waste, including cardboard and paper, glass, plastics, garden and building waste and scrap metal. We can also ensure that businesses have the right receptacles to make achieving their recycling aims easier than ever.
