Commercial waste services for all types of Businesses

We separate commercial waste disposal into two categories; business waste collection and business waste disposal. If you need a reliable waste collection service that will provide bins, lift them and then dispose of your waste for you then look no further. On the other hand, if you’re happy to dispose of your business waste yourself but need somewhere to take it, we can provide the appropriate location for you. 

No matter which aspect of commercial waste management you need help with, we can take care of it for you. Our network of trusted independent partners can accommodate all your commercial waste management needs in the most cost-effective and eco-friendly manner.

Waste Collection Management

How our commercial waste collections service works

  • NRC will provide you with the number of bins and the collection frequency your business needs and your collection will be scheduled in for the next 52 weeks, so you know exactly when your collections will happen. 
  • Your business waste is collected, sorted, recycled, and repurposed.
  • Unlike larger firms who just treat you like a number, we’re responsive, reactive, and get the job done, with the smallest amount of disruption to your business.
  • We partner with local independent refuse collection businesses that will provide you with a highly reliable, consistent reactive waste removal service.
  • You can get a full report detailing exactly what has happened to your commercial waste so you can see that we’re doing everything possible to dispose of your waste responsibly.

Handling all kinds of business waste collection

We’re fully equipped to handle all types of waste sustainably, so for all commercial waste collection needs, we’ve got you covered. The types of waste we collect include:

Waste Type

General Waste

We’ll get your non-recyclable items and dispose of them in the most responsible manner possible. For the sake of transparency, you’ll even get a service report that shows how we disposed of your general waste.


Mixed Recycling

By letting us collect your recyclable items (card, paper, plastic, metal, etc.) you can be sure that you’re maintaining any recycling goals that you uphold in your company. All you have to do is sort it on-site, and we’ll collect and recycle it all for you.

Cardboard Waste


If your business is one that produces lots of paper and cardboard waste, then we’re here to take the hard work away from you. We’ll even help you install on-site baling equipment if you want to deliver more cost-savings for your business.

Food Waste

Food Waste

We’ll collect your business’s food waste and break it down sustainably. It’s then transformed into green electricity, fertiliser, and compost. You can lower your general waste costs by removing your food waste from your general waste stream.

Glass Waste


Glass waste is heavy and can increase the removal costs of your general waste stream. If you separate glass into its own bin, then you’ll reduce your overall costs, and let us fully recycle it afterwards.

  • Your waste can be disposed of in a cost-effective, responsible manner. 
  • If this isn’t what you’re looking for and you need your waste to be taken away for you, read more about our waste collections service below.

Hear from some of our happy customers

"NRC has demonstrated great flexibility and responsiveness with a rigorous approach to compliance management that is very much sought after by a leading UK charity such as ours. The centralised and transparent approach has enabled British Heart Foundation to investigate options and alternatives during the normal course of business, with the ease of having a single point of contact to take the hassle out of waste management for us."

Endorsement quote mark

"NRC fully grasped our needs and designed a solution to suit our business that has delivered dramatic improvements above and beyond what was initially expected. The fact that we deal with a dedicated compliance and recycling contract manager at NRC while receiving expert service from some of the UK’s leading regional waste and recycling management suppliers gives us the best of both worlds and we’re delighted with the results."

Endorsement quote mark

"We started working with NRC in 2017 using their expertise to improve service delivery and reduce costs for our customers. We have built our portfolio with NRC every year since and rely on their responsive, managed approach to add value to our own proposition."

Endorsement quote mark

"NRC completed a full site audit and advised us on improvements we could make increasing recycling and reducing costs. They worked with our team to help everyone understand what we are trying to achieve. We have since invested in new equipment and the waste management process is much more efficient – and we now recycle over 90% of our waste. The NRC team are responsive and attend site whenever we need them."
