Switch now to your local, reliable, and cost-effective business waste provider!

Breckland Council, in partnership with Serco UK, is now offering business waste collection services across Dereham, Thetford, Attleborough, Watton, Swaffham and the rest of Breckland. Our local account managers understand your commercial wastes needs; why not explore how we can offer you and your business a flexible, cost effective and reliable waste collection service?

What we can offer your business today

We understand that every business is different. As such, we provide a variety of waste collection and disposal services that can be tailored to fit your specific business needs.

  • Choose from a range of container sizes or sacks to meet your business needs, including 240, 360, 660 and our popular 1100 litres* container.
  • We can provide extra collections or additional empties for one-off events
  • Our flexible approach means we can offer collection programmes to meet seasonal variations, avoiding unnecessary collection charges.
  • No business is too small or too big. Our experienced Waste Officers can assess your waste needs and recommend the most suitable and cost effective solution.
  • VAT exempt, saving you 20% on specific collection services. 

What we can collect

We offer two types of flexible business waste collection services:

General waste (non-recyclable) collection

Your local professional account manager will be happy to discuss your collection needs, explain our flexible approach and provide a competitive pricing structure, which will be VAT exempt - saving you 20%!

We can collect and dispose of non-recyclable, compactable waste produced by your business. Most businesses combine a general waste bin with a recycling bin. This enables you to segregate waste, prevent cross-contamination and save money, while still meeting waste legislation and sending less waste to landfill.

Dry Mixed Recycling Collection

Recycling is one of the easiest actions that a business can undertake to reduce waste service costs and its impact on the environment.

We actively encourage all our business customers to recycle as much waste as possible. Items we collect include glass bottles and jars, plastic food pots, food and drink cartons, paper, cardboard, aluminium cans, and plastic bottles.

Segregating your waste and maximising the amount of waste recycled reduces your negative impact on the environment. It also reduces your overall costs due to the high landfill tax on general waste.

All waste has to be dry, compactable and recyclable.
