Businesses can set up a trade waste contract with us to get their recycling and waste taken away from their premises.

We offer a mixed recycling collection for metal, plastic, paper and card.

Glass can be recycled at a glass recycling point.

We now also provide a food waste collection service. The food waste collection will make sure local businesses meet the requirements of the Waste (Scotland) Regulations 2012.
