Commercial waste services

Business waste is anything that is no longer required which your business needs to dispose of.

Commercial waste vehicle v2 The collection of business waste is not included in your business rates and you have a legal responsibility under the duty of care legislation to dispose of it responsibly.

Firstly we would encourage all businesses to look at their waste and recycle as much as possible, not only to ensure they comply with legal requirements but because recycling is usually cheaper.

Guildford Borough Council offers businesses a competitive commercial waste service.

For waste that cannot be recycled

We offer a flexible and competitive service which will be tailored to meet your business's needs. Collections can be made as frequently as you require, from Monday to Saturday between 5.30am and 1pm.

To find out what your collection day is please contact Customer Service Centre by calling 01483 505050 or email us at: commercialwaste@guildford.gov.uk

From 2015 we have started working on Bank Holidays, this means that your waste collection day will remain the same, except for any changes over Christmas and New Year.

Storage space, access for emptying, volume of material produced and convenience are essential when considering container type. We can offer wheeled bins (360 to 1100 Litre) which are charged per lift and grey trade waste sacks which are delivered to your premises and charged per 50.

For recyclable waste

Bags for commercial recycling can be delivered to your business.
