Commercial Waste & Recycling
Forge Waste & Recycling offers a Total Waste Management Solution for your business. We can help you save money by introducing Innovative Recycling Solutions as well as cost effective General Trade Waste collections.
Remember, we are not a broker. We will collect your business waste using our own fleet of vehicles. We only employ experienced, local drivers to ensure we offer the best customer service possible.
We work with a variety of businesses across the retail, catering, hospitality and industrial sectors. Our customers range from national chains through to sole traders.
You can be assured that we will deliver a high quality, legally compliant and competitive waste service that will suit your specific requirements.
How the service works
To ensure you are signing up for the most suitable service, we will come to your site and carry out a free waste audit if it's required. We can advise you on the most cost effective solution to deal with your waste.
Once the correct service has been arranged and the relevant paperwork has been completed, we will arrange for the bins/sacks to be delivered. This process can take as little as a couple of days from you initial enquiry. If urgent it is possible to get the paper work signed and a bin delivered on the same day.
You will then be informed of you regular collection day/days. If more collections are required please call our customer services team who will this arrange for you.
As a waste producer you must ensure your General Waste is contained and collected regularly.
Forge Recycling can arrange to collect your compactable, non-hazardous residual waste and will dispose of it at a fully licenced facility.
We make 1000s of General Waste collections each week from a wide range of customers:
- Pub / Restaurant / Cafe
We offer a full range of lockable containers with regular scheduled pickups. Our service is reliable & competitive, and we operate 7 days a week. Forge Recycling will supply all relevant documentation to ensure you comply with all current legislation.
We offer a Mixed Recyclable collection, as we have found this to be the best way to collect all the recyclable materials from businesses. Instead of having multiple bins for each different type of dry recyclable material, you simply put it all into one container and we do the hard work for you.
- Plastic Bottles
- Drinks Cans
- Food Tins
These can all be put into your Mixed Recycling Container. Once collected, this material will be sorted at a Materials Recovery Facility where it will be 100% recycled.
We can supply wheelie bins (360 litre, 660 litre & 1100 litre) as well as Trade Sacks for this material. All bins are clearly labelled so there is no confusion.
As well as external containers we can also supply a wide range of internal bin solutions for your office/work place. We will be happy to work with you to create recycle stations and can provide posters etc. All this helps to increase your recycling rates.
This method of recycling gives impressive results. The service is cheaper than the collection of General Waste, so as landfill tax rises you will continue to save more money year on year.
Glass bottles are expensive to send to landfill as they are heavy. Forge Recycling can collect glass bottles from Restaurants, Pubs and Clubs and ensure they are 100% recycled, helping to save your company money at the same time.
We collect bottles using 240 and 360 litre bins.
We collect food waste using 240 litre bins. These are emptied weekly ensuring food does not sit on site for long periods of time. We also offer kitchen caddys and regular bin washes; we plan to make food recycling a piece of cake!
What foods can be recycled?
- Meat and fish – raw and cooked, including bones

Why should we recycle our food?
Methane from food waste is 22 times more damaging to the environment than CO2.
Be one step further towards 'Zero Waste to Landfill'.
Your general waste containers will be cleaner and lighter, and therefore cheaper.
The recycling process is even better than CO2 neutral, as it generates renewable energy.
By separating your food waste you will be reducing the waste sent to landfill and therefore helping your business avoid expensive Landfill Tax costs.
Increasing recycling helps to reduce your business carbon foot print.
