First Mile can provide bin collections for a variety of commercial bin sizes, with locks provided for security. Bins can be steel or plastic and are clearly branded to help users understand what needs to go inside them.
We use RFID technology to assign bins to a customer, so we always know which bin is yours. This also feeds into our bin weighing technology, allowing us to provide you with detailed environmental reporting on your bin collections.
Commercial Bins FAQs
What do I put in commercial bins?
Our range of bins are clearly designated for different types of commercial waste, and you can choose what you need based on your requirements.
This means that you can use our commercial bins for all your general waste, mixed recycling, food recycling, and glass recycling needs.
Do you offer commercial recycling bins?
At First Mile, we operate a strict zero-to-landfill policy. This means that we recycle as much of your waste as possible, and so we provide commercial recycling bins for glass, food, and other mixed recyclable materials.
We also work with you to maximise the amount of waste that you recycle, and we even offer Service Extras to help you meet and maintain your recycling targets.
Other waste that can’t be recycled then goes to generate green electricity and doesn’t end up rotting in the ground for hundreds of years.
What type of commercial bin is best for my business?
With our range of commercial bin sizes and waste collection services, you’ll find what you need with First Mile no matter how much waste your business produces.

What if I need a more specialist waste collection?
At First Mile, we don’t just offer regular business waste collection, but we also offer collection and recycling services for some waste that might need to be more sensitively handled, or recycled in a less conventional manner.
What happens to the waste after each commercial bin collection?
Once your waste has been collected, it is sorted so that any recyclable materials are removed for recycling.
Any other waste that cannot be recycled is transported to an Energy from Waste facility. Here it is safely incinerated in a process that generates electricity and heat to power homes in the UK.
Any by-product residues are then used in the construction industry.
Do you provide large wheelie bins?
When choosing First Mile for your rubbish removal needs, we can provide you with a range of commercial bin sizes. For general waste and mixed recycling you can use a large wheelie bin, with a volume of 1100L.
