What is classed as commercial waste?

Any type of waste that is produced by a business is considered to be commercial waste. Commercial waste can accumulate in any business sector – from construction to hospitality.

There can be confusion around the distinction between commercial and domestic waste. Waste that is produced by a business in any form includes – but is not limited to – paper, cardboard, retail packaging, food waste and must be disposed of separately to domestic waste.

You should not dispose of commercial waste in your personal domestic bin.

What can I put in my commercial bin?

Our bins can accommodate both general and dry mixed recyclable waste. Our 240 litre bin can contain a mixture of general and recyclable waste (e.g. glass and food), whereas our larger 660 and 1100 litre bins should be used to contain just general waste and cardboard materials.

If you’re unsure about what can go in your bin, please contact us.

What do you do with commercial waste?

We will collect commercial waste and transport it to our 17-acre on site recycling and disposal facilities, where it will be sorted into recyclable and non-recyclable materials.

We take pride in our recycling services and will make sure that any recyclable waste is prioritised and disposal is minimised to reduce any negative impact on the environment.


What responsibility do businesses have for commercial waste?

Companies have a responsibility to dispose of waste ethically and environmentally. It is against the law to dispose of commercial waste improperly as this can have a serious impact on the environment.

If waste is not collected, sorted and disposed of in the correct manner, it can be fly tipped or sent to landfill sites unnecessarily where it will contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and climate change.

Failing to dispose of commercial waste securely and in the correct way can also harm the reputation of your business as well as the planet. This is why at J Dickinson & Sons, we have a duty of care to waste management and are committed to project green and ethical waste solutions.
