Waste collecting when you are a London business can be stressful if you are not using the right collection business or service that is right for you. Using a company that is trustworthy, reliable and does what you need is all you want and this should be easy, right!
Some companies will make you responsible to ensure the waste has been separated into various streams with bags or certain colours that are to contain certain items only. This can be a hassle if your staff don’t follow the rules, but if they do it can help your business and possible save you money. The two types of streams that are generally required are:
- Dry recyclables (Mixed recycling bags)
- Residual waste (General waste bags)
Here is a list of things that are dry recyclables
- White & coloured paper
- Books, cardboard
- Empty drinks cans
- Bottles and cartons
- Plastic and paper cups
Here is a list of things that are residual wastes
- Food scraps
- Crisp bags
- Sweet wrappers
- Anything else that has been contaminated with food
The internal use of the bag system generally tends to consist of two coloured bags to make it easy to know what goes it each bag. They could be:
- Clear with green logo for dry recyclables
- Blue with white logo for residual wastes
The coloured bags make it easy for staff to recycle and to know which products should go in each bag just by looking at them.
Prices tend to include:
- Controlled waste transfer note/duty of care
- Collection when full
- All recycling fees
It does pay to check that this is the case as each company’s pricing will vary slightly.
