We also provide a grounds maintenance and cleansing service to businesses. There is a 3% discount if you buy more than one of the three services available, with all options selected to be over the same three year period.

If your business generates low volumes of waste

If you are a smaller business and do not generate sufficient waste for a regular collection service, you can book an appointment to take your waste to the Household Waste Recycling Centre on Barkers Lane in Bedford (charges apply).
