Trade waste and recycling collections

We provide both trade waste and trade recycling services for businesses. The charges for recycling collections are less than that for standard waste.

What we collect

We collect:

  • mixed dry recycling (plastic bottles, tubs, trays and cups, cans and foil, paper and card and cartons)
  • glass (bottles and jars) - colour separated
  • general non-hazardous waste

When we collect

You can choose to have your waste and recycling collected once a week or once a month. Collections start at 7am although the actual collection times will vary. If your bins are not out in time for collection, we won't return to empty them later.

Occasionally there might be disruptions to bin collections which are out of our control, for example due to weather conditions.


We provide the following sizes of containers:

  • 140 Litre wheeled bin (smaller than standard household size)
  • 240 Litre wheeled bin (standard household size)
  • 660 Litre metal bin with 4 wheels
  • 820 Litre metal bin with 4 wheels
  • 1100 Litre metal bin with 4 wheels
  • 1280 Litre metal bin, same size as a bin at a Recycling Point

For information on trade recycling or trade waste collections, business waste reduction, reuse, recycling and regulatory compliance, please contact Wasteline.

You should only place non-hazardous waste in your general waste bin.
