Commercial Waste

Welcome to your Local Commercial Waste Services

Birmingham City Council is the largest local authority in the UK and as such we manage the largest domestic, commercial refuse collection and disposal operation of any local authority. We collected and treated more than 500,000 tonnes of refuse from our combined operations via our Zero-Waste-To-Landfill facility at Tyesley.

Your waste is no longer rubbish, it is a resource that can be recycled or used as sustainable energy. Our duty is to help businesses to; limit the waste they produce, reuse where possible and maximise recoverable waste. We deliver bespoke solutions and offer a complete assessment of every clients recycling and waste disposal needs, ensuring that our clients receive a reliable and dedicated service which will exceed their environmental goals.
