General commercial waste
As part of our commercial waste collection, we collect the following:
- general waste that cannot be recycled, for example, some plastics
- food packaging
- small amounts of green waste.
Mixed material collections
If you choose a mixed material collection, you can put all recyclable materials in one container. You do not have to sort your recycling, making it quick and easy for you and your staff. If you are a BCP Council resident, you can recycle everything that you'd normally recycle in your household recycling bin.
In a mixed material container we collect:
- metal food tins and drink cans
- plastic bottles and food packaging
- glass bottles and jars
- drink cartons (Tetra Paks).
We can advise on container type and frequency of collection to suit your needs and space limitations. Various bin sizes from 1100 litres to 240 litres.
Single material collections
Our single material options are ideal if you create high quantities of one particular type of waste such as cardboard or paper.
In our single material collections we collect:
Food waste collections in Bournemouth and Christchurch
If you recycle your food leftovers, especially if you own a restaurant, hotel, pub or takeaway, you could save money on your general waste collections. Recycling collections cost you less than putting your waste into a general non-recycling collection. It’s also better for the environment as we can turn your food waste into a useful green energy source.
You can recycle all cooked and uncooked food from your commercial premises, including:
- meat, fish and bones
- fruit and vegetables
- bread, cakes and pastries
- pasta and rice
- teabags and coffee grounds
- plate scrapings.
Please read our terms and conditions for the commercial waste service.
