Here at Yorwaste we offer a range of commercial waste collections to businesses across North Yorkshire.

We work with a wide range of companies/organisations in various sectors, both public and private. These include education, hospitality, industrial, leisure, retail and local government.

We can also collect from multi-site locations throughout the area, offering cost-effective waste and recycling solutions that meet your specific needs.

We assess your bin size requirements, the number of bins required, the number of business locations, the type of waste and the number of collections needed, to ensure you have exactly the right package.

Our full list of commercial waste collections are:

General waste

Our general waste collection service will take care of all your non-recyclable waste.

And the good news is that in later 2017, this waste will no longer need to go into landfill. Instead, it will be taken to the new Allerton Waste Recovery Park (AWRP) where it will be transformed into green energy. In partnership with our major shareholder North Yorkshire County Council, Yorwaste will be the main supplier of waste to AWRP.

Dry mixed recycling

Yorwaste’s Dry Mixed Recycling service is the ideal way for you to manage your business waste and help the environment. Furthermore, it’s also very easy to do.

You don’t need to worry about separating your waste because we do it all for you. Please just make sure that you put the following items in your waste container.

  • Plastic bottles
  • Drink cans
  • Food tins
  • Paper
  • Magazines
  • Card/cardboard

Recycling at work is sensible, easy to do and, most of all, it makes good business sense. In addition, it could even save you money.

Glass recycling

Our dedicated glass recycling services is a popular choice with business customers.

Whatever the size of your business, we can offer small and medium capacity bins or can provide bulk collection services to recycle your glass.

With access to an extensive glass reprocessing network, we can guarantee that the glass you dispose of will return to its original form.

Cardboard recycling

We offer a dedicated card recycling service to our business customers.

This comes with a choice of custom-designed recycling containers, including internal recycling bins and containers, external bins and trade waste containers. We can also provide on-site balers and compactors to clients who produce large volumes of cardboard waste.

Confidential waste

Failure to comply with UK and EU standards for records retention and management could result in a data breach. This could land you with a £500,000 fine and irreversible damage to your company’s reputation.

Yorwaste’s confidential service waste service covers everything from the shredding of paper through to the physical destruction of computers. In addition, it even includes staff name badges and uniforms.

We provide secure waste ‘consoles’ for customers to deposit confidential waste items such as paper, CDs and badges, with separate collections being made for larger items, such as computers. This material is then either shredded or destroyed on the premises, or taken to a secure facility. The whole process is full audited and you will receive a certificate of destruction at the end.

Food waste

Yorwaste’s commercial food waste service is available across North Yorkshire. It offers businesses a cost effective opportunity to divert significant amounts of waste from landfill. Therefore, this will have a positive impact on the environment.

The types of materials we will accept are primarily unpackaged cooked and raw foods. These include sandwiches, fruit and vegetable peelings, meat, fish and bread. In addition, we can also accept category 3 animal by-products intended for human or animal consumption.

The waste we collect from your premises is taken to an anaerobic digestion plant in Yorkshire for conversion into renewable energy.
