Types of Commercial Waste

Several different types of commercial waste are produced, all of which have their own specific waste disposal needs.

At Robinsons Facilities Services, we offer commercial waste collection services for all of the following types of waste:

Food waste

Food waste is common in any business where food is prepared or consumed. If not properly disposed of, it can attract pests, cause odours, and harm the environment. Businesses should provide designated food waste bins so scraps are separated from general waste for proper disposal by collectors. This keeps workplaces clean, deters pests, and reduces environmental impact.

Paper and cardboard

These are two of the most common types of commercial waste and can both be recycled easily.


As plastic waste poses increasing environmental concerns, businesses should make recycling it a priority.


Metal waste can be easily recycled. It can also be reused if it’s in good condition.

Hazardous waste

 Businesses producing hazardous waste like chemicals, oil, and batteries must ensure it is disposed of safely through proper waste management procedures.

Clinical waste

Clinical waste such as used needles and dressings requires careful disposal to avoid transmitting diseases or causing injury.

Confidential waste

Confidential documents and business paperwork require secure disposal to prevent sensitive information from falling into the wrong hands.

With so many different types of waste all having their own unique properties, you can see why commercial waste collection is necessary. Don’t take chances when it comes to your commercial waste. Leave it to the professionals at Robinsons Facilities Services.

Commercial Waste Management Responsibility

The Environmental Protection Act 1990 makes businesses responsible for the waste they produce. As such, business owners are responsible for ensuring it is disposed of correctly.

Here’s how you can meet  your legal obligations:

  • Keep track of the waste you produce. This means knowing what type of waste it is, how much of it there is, and where it came from.
  • Make sure that you store your waste safely so that it cannot leak, spill or pollute the environment. 
  • Ensure that a trusted waste collection company disposes of your commercial waste.
