How to order

Please telephone us on 01482 300 301 to discuss your requirements. We will then send you the combined trade waste agreements for you to sign and return to the address below.

What happens next

When we receive your signed agreement we will -  

  • deliver your containers within two working days 
  • return a copy of the countersigned agreement to you together with an information pack. 

The pack includes A4 stickers for your bins so they can be easily identified by our collection crews.

You will be invoiced quarterly in arrears and payment can be made by cash, cheque or BACS.


All containers must be accessible for collection by us between 7am and 4pm on the day of collection.

If we fail to collect scheduled waste collections and it’s our fault, we will endeavour to rectify this within 24 hours of you notifying us.

We will only collect waste and recycling that is in the bins. If you have additional waste or recycling to be collected, you may need to order an extra bin.

Extra containers

You can request an extra bin by telephoning 01482 300 301 or email
