Green waste recycling for business
A commercial recycling service for the uplift of green waste such as grass clippings, plants, flowers and leaves.
The Council is able to offer an integrated package of waste and recycling services, which will ensure your business is fully compliant with the new Regulations.
Perth & Kinross Council's Commercial Green Waste Recycling Collection [588Kb] guide provides information on the types of recycling we accept from your business.
Why should your business recycle green waste?
Recycling Services can be a more cost effective way of dealing with your waste than residual (non-recyclable) waste, which is sent to landfill. Compared to processing recycled waste, disposing of residual waste is far more costly due to landfill tax, which rises year on year.
By using these services you will also be contributing to a drive for greater resource efficiency in Scotland by diverting waste away from landfill, and preventing the production of harmful greenhouse gases.
In addition, Local Authority commercial waste collection services are outside the scope of VAT. Therefore, commercial waste collection services provided by Perth and Kinross Council are not subject to VAT, which is beneficial to many businesses in Perth and Kinross.
Waste and Recycling Audits
Understanding your waste is key to introducing a cost effective waste and recycling service. Use our Waste and Recycling Audit Sheet [170Kb] to identify what your waste consists of, in terms of both the type and approximate volume of waste being produced.
If these services are of interest to your business or organisation, our Commercial Waste and Recycling Team can provide a free Zero Waste Compliance. You can also:
