Special collections

You are here

Any items not collected as part of the normal commercial waste collection can be disposed of and recycled through the Wastesaver special collection service.

Using our special collection service means you can be assured that your items will be collected within five working days of making an appointment and will be processed to a high environmental standard and not shipped abroad or fly-tipped. Special collections are competitively priced.

What can be collected?

Electrical items such as computers, printers, photo copiers, TVs etc. are covered by stringent legislation that requires you to dispose of them in such way that does not cause harm to the environment. Our special collection service can help you with all of your waste collection problems. We also collect other items such as office furniture, wood, carpets, metal, glass and shop fittings.

Please note we cannot collect sand, bricks, concrete, or potentially hazardous waste such as oil, chemicals, paint and asbestos.

We can arrange collections of large volumes of waste, for example when your waste compactor has broken down, after an office clear-out or when you are refitting your business' interior.

As with all rubbish collections you'll need to complete a legal document called a Waste Transfer Note.

Events and festivals

We offer on-site waste management for large-scale open-air events such as festivals and concerts, providing recycling and general waste bins and collection. We also provide additional support to keep the site clear of rubbish during the event.
