Commercial Waste

Since its inception in 2018 we have been running a commercial waste service with the intention of providing local businesses with a fairly priced and flexible service. The original decision was predicated on introducing a new service, whilst using existing resources and generating surplus income to help support the budgets within Waste & Recycling.


The service is currently being subsidised by waste and recycling resources and the national HGV driver shortage has had a significant impact. There has been a 2 week suspension of garden waste that impacted some 12,500 residents as well as difficulty in fulfilling our missed collection recall commitment.
