Biffa launches low-cost trade waste recycling service for SMEs

Biffa claims to have developed a cost-effective online trade waste recycling service for SMEs, in a bid to make its collection services more accessible to smaller waste producers.

The new website allows companies to undertake a postcode search for waste collection services in their area, before receiving a quote specific to their requirements. They can also book and pay online in advance for the service.

Biffa is offering a variety of waste and recycling services such as bespoke glass collections and dry mixed recycling (DMR) including cardboard, paper, newspapers, plastic films and bottles, steel and aluminium cans, and general waste.

The company's divisional recycling director, Michael Topham, said: "This new website is all about opening up collection services to businesses that are appropriate for their needs.

"A lot of small businesses find it difficult to access suitable waste and recycling services as many local authorities don't offer a business collection service so it's even more important that businesses can access services elsewhere at a competitive price."

Biffa's new service comes in the wake of the launch of the Government's Waste Review Responsibility Deal, which has been drawn up to make it easier for SMEs to access affordable trade waste and recycling services.
