Business waste management is a time-consuming and expensive task for most companies. The number of regulations that have to be met seems to increase every year, which has pushed the cost of waste disposal and recycling to an all-time high.
Business Waste can help by providing professional licensed rubbish removal in York at competitive prices. We are one of the UK’s largest rubbish removal companies with depots located across the UK.
Our high-quality service includes full management of all waste removal and recycling tasks, giving you complete peace of mind that your waste is being removed and recycled in line with current legislation.
We provide a range of rubbish removal services to companies in York, including:
Sofa disposal York
Households in the UK throw away 672,000 tonnes of unwanted furniture each year, with the vast majority of this waste ending up in a landfill site. The Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) says that just over half of this waste could be reused.
So before you throw away your old sofa, think about how it can be repaired, reused or recycled. There are several charities across the UK that offer FREE sofa collection services. Alternatively, think about selling it on eBay or even pass it onto a friend.
If you would like us to dispose of your old furniture for you, contact Business Waste today on 0800 211 83 90.
Office clearance York
Each year around 1.2 million tonnes of desks and 1.8 million tonnes of office chairs end up in landfill, according to the Waste & Resources Action Programme. This is on top of the estimated 2 million tonnes of waste electronic and computer equipment which is thrown away annually by homes and businesses in the UK.
Most of this waste can be recycled. Electronic equipment such as computers, laptops and monitors can all be refurbished and resold, while used office furniture can be donated to charity where it is made available to community groups and not-for-profit organisations. This helps to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

White goods disposal York
Annually, we throw away 1.4 million tonnes of household electrical appliances. White goods like these represent a problem for recyclers because items such as fridges contain gases, oils, and refrigerants which need to be carefully and safely removed to prevent damaging greenhouse gasses from being released.
You should therefore only throw white goods such as fridges, freezers and washing machines away as a last resort. Think about repairing or donating them before replacement. If you must throw them away, make sure you use a licensed contractor who will dispose of them properly.

Construction waste York
It is estimated that 95% of all construction waste can be recycled. So when carrying out renovations, building work or refurbishment work, you need to make sure that you have a construction waste management plan in place to recycle waste metal, glass, wood and plasterboard.
Business Waste provides a range of construction waste collection and recycling services to building and demolition companies in York. Our construction waste management services include the collection and recycling of wood, metal, cardboard, plasterboard, plastics and glass.
Bulky waste collection York
Removing bulky waste can be expensive, so before you throw it away, think about how it can be reused. If the item is in good condition, there is a good chance that someone else can make use of it. So consider donating it to a charity, who may be able to find a good home for it.
If you must throw bulky items away you need to use a licensed waste disposal contractor. This ensures your bulky items are disposed of correctly in line with environmental laws. Any professional waste disposal company will issue you with a Duty of Care certificate which proves they are licensed to dispose of bulky waste items.

FREE duty of care certificate
Business Waste also provides FREE Duty of Care certificates to all our customers. It is a legal requirement for all licensed waste contractors to provide a Duty of Care certificate. The certificate is valid for 1-year and proves that your waste contractor is licensed under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 to dispose of your waste legally and responsibly.
Some contractors charge for issuing Duty of Care certificates, but this is a highly dubious business practice in our opinion. Your Duty of Care certificate or Waste Transfer Note should always be provided FREE of charge. Never trust any waste contractor which attempts to charge you for a certificate.
