Why hire a waste management company?

Business Waste (all waste from business activities and sometimes called 'Commercial Waste') must be collected by a licensed business waste carrier or waste management company. These companies can organise business waste collections for your premises, and provide you with legal documentation to prove you are managing your business waste legally, called a Business Waste Transfer Note.

What about Business Recycling?

Business Recycling works in exactly the same way as Business Waste. By law, company's need to demonstrate they are recycling waste where it is economical and practical to do so. First Mile help businesses do that, by providing over 30 low cost recycling services that will save money and the planet.
