FAQs About Commercial Recycling

Here are some questions that could come to mind for your business when considering commercial waste collection and we are here to answer them!

What is Commercial Recycling?

Commercial waste recycling refers to the reclamation of scrap materials from industries or businesses. It generally does not refer to agricultural waste products, chemical or hazardous waste.

The recycling of industrial waste is an important part of the circular economy. It avoids the environmental impacts of disposing of industrial waste, which can be toxic. It can also be cost effective for businesses.

Industrial waste can be recycled in many ways. For example, scrap metal can be melted down to make new products. Paper waste can be turned into paper pulp. Plastics are often recycled by cleaning them up and reforming them into new products.

Construction waste is counted as commercial grade too. Old materials such as used asphalt shingles or scrap metal sometimes have no market, but other types of materials such as wood, concrete, and bricks can often be reclaimed.

That’s why it makes sense for businesses to take advantage of commercial recycling. Besides the environmental benefits, it will save you money in the long run and can effect lasting change.

What are My Legal Responsibilities for Commercial Waste?

If you are running a business, you are required to safely contain and legally dispose of all waste produced from your premises, this is known as your commercial waste duty of care under the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

As part of your duty of care, you may either dispose of your commercial waste yourself or use a commercial waste disposal service (like us!). Whichever option you choose, remember to maintain the records necessary for legally disposing of your commercial waste at hand.

Waste created from commercial activity is classified as commercial waste. This includes:

  • dry mixed recycling including cardboard, plastic and mixed paper

Contact us for a more comprehensive list of items are can or cannot collect from your business to take to a commercial recycling center.

What is a Commercial Waste Agreement?

All businesses producing any sort of waste on site must arrange for it to be taken away by a recognised trade waste carrier. Inspire Waste Management can help you with this as we have all of the appropriate waste disposal certificates and accreditation.

How to save money through commercial recycling?

Sending waste to landfill is expensive. The average charge at the moment is between £80 and £90 per tonne (including the landfill tax and depending on which area of the UK you’re in) and the cost increases every year as local authorities push businesses and households to recycle more. By removing the below items from your general waste could reduce the weight of items you’re sending to landfill and thus save money by recycling them: Electronic equipment, glass, metals, organic waste, paper, cardboard, plastics, textiles, tyres and wood.
