Sign up today to set up a regular General Waste sack or wheelie bin collection from your business.

We collect general waste daily throughout the UK.
✔︎ Chuck it in
✘ Please keep it out
The average person in the UK throws away their own body weight in rubbish every 7 weeks, up to 60% of which could be recycled.
We work to encourage businesses to recycle as much as possible - that's why we offer over 20 options of recycling services! However, we understand that some general waste will always be produced.
Also known as residual waste, this includes anything that can't be recycled, for different reasons.
For example, products made of non-recyclable materials (such as expanded polystyrene) or several different materials that can't be separated (such as crips packets), but also any waste that's been heavily contaminated. Hence the importance of keeping separated bins for recycling and general waste!
But just because it can't be recycled, it doesn't mean that your commercial waste should go to a landfill. First Mile's general waste collection is reliable, safe and environmentally friendly.
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 for your commercial waste!
