Commercial waste and recycling 

As a business owner, you have a legal obligation to make sure your commercial waste is disposed of effectively and by a licensed carrier. See Duty of Care and T&C’s below for details.

We provide two services, one to collect general business waste, the other to collect paper and card recycling. You can sign up to one or both services.

General waste

We can take most general commercial waste. Unfortunately we cannot collect the following items:

  • Electrical items and batteries
  • Clinical waste
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard
  • Chemicals
  • Oil and paint
  • Tyres
  • Uncooked food
If you need to dispose of these types of waste or any hazardous items, please contact a specialist disposal company for advice.


We collect most paper and card for recycling.

We will only collect recycling items that are dry and free from contamination.

Our waste containers

  • 240 litre (1 to 4 full bin bags) 
  • 360 litre (5 to 6 full bin bags) 
  • 660 litre (7 to 14 full bin bags) 
  • 1,100 litre (15 to 20 full bin bags) 
Bins are supplied free of charge and remain the property of Sevenoaks District Council. It is your responsibility to safely store the bins. Any loss or damage will incur a charge.

Commercial waste collection sacks

We also provide pre-paid collection waste sacks.
  • A roll of 26 commercial waste sacks for £80.35
  • A roll of 25 commercial paper recycling sacks for £38

Collection days

We collect your waste Monday to Friday from 7am onwards.


Please contact our helpful Commercial Waste team for a free, no obligation quote.
Our charges are based on each collection made for the type of waste and size of bin.
There is also a small, separate charge for the annual preparation of the statutory Duty of Care Waste Transfer Note.
Our prices are reviewed before the start of each financial year and we will give you at least one month’s notice of any changes.
