Commercial Waste FAQs
What is commercial waste?
Any waste produced by a business on its premises is classed as commercial waste (also known as business waste). This means that whatever the nature of your business - whether it’s run from an office, a shop, educational facilities, or an entertainment venue - any rubbish or waste generated is classed as commercial waste.
The commercial waste category also includes any waste resulting from construction, agriculture, industry, and demolition.
Different types of commercial waste
Commercial waste includes more commonplace rubbish such paper, cardboard, cans, retail packaging, and food wrappers. But, it can also include IT equipment or office furniture such as desks, filing cabinets, and old printers that are not so easy to dispose of.
For this reason, any type of commercial waste cannot be taken home to fill up domestic bins. Instead, it must legally be disposed of in a certain way.
Why use a commercial waste collection service?
Commercial waste must be collected by a licensed business waste carrier or business waste management company.
As proof that your commercial waste has been collected and managed legally, you will receive a Business Waste Transfer Note from the licensed business waste management company. With First Mile, your Waste Transfer Note will be automatically generated in our Customer App.
By choosing First Mile for your commercial waste collection, you can be sure that your waste is disposed of promptly, properly, and professionally.

It may also be possible to donate some of your commercial waste rather than having it all disposed of. Furniture and other office equipment can be useful for certain charities.
