General waste collections for business

An efficient and reliable commercial waste service for the uplift of general waste that could not be reused or recycled.

The Commercial Waste Team is able to offer an integrated package of waste and recycling services, which will ensure your business is fully compliant with the Waste (Scotland) Regulations.

What waste can your business dispose of?

Commercial collections for general (residual) waste are for waste that cannot easily be reused or recycled. All types of non-recyclable waste, that is not classified as hazardous or special waste, can be disposed of using this icon Residual Waste Collection [186Kb] service.

A range of waste containers are available to suit the volume and type of waste that your business produces, and storage space you have. This includes two and four wheeled bins of various sizes, labels and trade waste sacks. A waste officer will be able to advise you on the container that will be most suitable for your needs. For the full list of bin sizes available, please contact the Commercial Waste Team on 01738 476476 or email
