General Waste

In today's modern, recycling heavy, environment General Waste simply refers to everything that you can't dispose of via a separate recycle channel. It's our aim to help you to reduce the amount of waste you dispose of into a General Waste bin as we can. Not only to reduce the amount you recycle but to save you money too.

How is it collected?

General waste can be collected in sacks, wheelie bins, skips and containers of all shapes and sizes. The most popular bins for small to medium sites are the 1100L and 240L wheelie bins. For medium sizes sites it might make more sense to consider FEL's and for industrial volumes RORO's may be more suited. 

Dependant on containers and volumes, collections can be set up daily, weekly, fortnightly or on an adhoc basis.

Landfill Tax increase £8 every year. It is currently £72 per tonne.

Where does it go?

Normally General Waste will be sent to landfill and that's really why we'd help you to avoid it. In some cases depending on availability landfill can be avoided by sending General Waste to an RDF facility. Here the waste is compressed and baled and then sent to a further location to be incinerated. Electricity is generated from the heat created.

How much does it cost?

General waste is the most expensive way for your business to dispose of its rubbish. Current landfill tax is £72 per tonne. We are one of the most competitive general waste collection services around, made more so by the fact we'll help you do it less.
