Our business waste and recycling service
We provide a low cost, flexible and responsive business waste collection service throughout the county. This includes different sized bins which can be emptied weekly or fortnightly.
For recycling we only provide a fortnightly collection; businesses can have up to five standard 240 litre bins.
If bins are not suitable we offer prepaid business waste sacks, however these are for non-recyclable waste only.
Our prices are per bin, per lift, and include a roll of 50 blue trade sacks where required. VAT is not applied to this service.
If you are a charity shop you may be eligible for a collection only charge. Please contact us to see if you are entitled to this reduced rate.

Other recycling services
There is a range of waste management companies within Herefordshire which may be able to offer your business a more suitable service than ourselves. We recommend that you do some research and always ask to see their waste carriers licence and check that they are going to take your waste to a permitted waste treatment/disposal facility. You can check a waste licence on the public register of waste carriers.

You will need to have the following information to hand:
- Your name and that of your business
- The address where we will collect the bin from
- Your phone number and email address

What happens next?
We will carry out a risk assessment with our business waste contractor. Once this is done, we will send you a contract, direct debit and ask you to complete the electronic duty of care form (edoc). When we receive the completed paperwork and have been notified that edoc has been completed, we will arrange your first collection and for the bins to be delivered.
