Bristol Waste Company (BWC) has launched a commercial waste and recycling collection service to meet what it’s calling “increasing demand” from businesses in Bristol and the surrounding areas.
Wholly-owned by Bristol City Council’s Bristol Holding Company Ltd, The Teckal company, was awarded a 10-year contract to provide in-house waste services across Bristol.
It is now offering Bristol companies a bespoke waste management solution, which includes general waste and recycling, shredding, commercial skips and clinical waste.
The Teckal company will also offer source segregated recycling – where waste is sorted at the company’s own premises before being taken away by BWC.
“By helping businesses recycle more effectively, our new commercial offer will help them reduce their costs and will help us maximise diversion from landfill.”
Tracey Morgan, managing director at Bristol Waste Company said: “We recognise that every business has its own waste requirements, yet most receive a one-size-fits-all solution’ – irrespective of its size or the industry it operates in. Bristol Waste Commercial has been launched to provide a more bespoke, local service that works closely with businesses to fully understand their needs and the challenges they face.”
It is increasingly expensive for businesses to dispose of general waste and far cheaper to recycle. To address this, Bristol Waste has pledged to provide customers with all the necessary information and resources they need to recycle more efficiently, including food waste bins which are widely underused by Bristol businesses.
Tracey continues: “By helping businesses recycle more effectively, our new commercial offer will help them reduce their costs and will help us maximise diversion from landfill. In turn, the value derived from the sale of recyclable materials, increased through source segregated recycling, will help us further reduce the cost of the service to our customers.
“Bristol Waste Company already has a lot of infrastructure in place to service our domestic contract, so we are certain we can be competitive on price.”
