Shouldn't I be recycling instead?

We work to encourage businesses to recycle as much as possible - that's why we offer over 20 options of recycling services. Our general waste collection service is for anything leftover that can't be recycled.

Do you offer commercial waste collection in my area?

Yes. First Mile are a fully licensed commercial waste company operating in every postcode across London and the UK. We collect using our ultra-low emission vehicles, from over 27,000 businesses throughout the UK. You can order a general waste bin collection service, or fill our waste sacks and we'll collect from the kerbside.

What happens to business waste after you've collected it?

After sorting, your business waste is transported to an Energy from Waste facility, where it's safely incinerated. The process generates electricity and heat that power homes in the UK, and by-products residues are used in the construction industry. Green, safe and reliable - everything you need to responsibly manage commercial waste from your business.
