About business



If you live in Bristol, you will likely have your household waste and recycling collected by our residential waste and recycling crews every week.

However, did you know, we support business properties in the area too? We provide various services, from Waste and Recycling to Site clearances and Specialist deep cleans, and can also tailor our offering and create a bespoke package for your business.

Sustainability in waste

Our Business service launched in 2017 and since then we have trained our staff to provide best-in-class service. With a focus on educating the business communities of Bristol to look after the environment, we put sustainability at the heart of what we do.

We are keen to get involved in green initiatives and have been involved in the Bristol One City Plan since it began. The plan brings together a wide range of public, private and third sector partners within Bristol that all share an aim to make Bristol a fair, healthy and sustainable city.

Similarly, we continuously try to support and educate our customers in how to raise their recycling rates, minimise their waste and live a more sustainable work life.

Award-winning campaigns

In addition to this, as a business, we have completed numerous city-wide award-winning campaigns to increase food recycling, reduce littering and clear up our environment.

Our Slim my Waste, Litter Hurts, Waste Nothing Challenge, Great Bristol Spring Clean and For Cups Sake campaigns have opened people’s eyes to the types of things they can personally do to help Bristol stay cleaner and greener.

Our City

We are a Teckal company, wholly owned by Bristol City Council. Therefore, any surplus we generate is reinvested back into the City of Bristol. Whether improving our services or the environment in which we all live.

Due to this and as we have no interest in making a profit for non-Bristol shareholders, we are freed up and able to focus on meeting our City’s ambitious environmental, social and economic objectives.

Keeping the City green

By choosing us as your waste management provider, you are contributing to a greener Bristol overall.

For example, as we already service businesses in Bristol and the surrounding areas, we are not adding to our carbon footprint by supporting your business.

We also have electric vehicles that minimise pollution and all of our waste is recycled or disposed of using our network of local reprocessors in the UK.
