Charity waste and recycling collection 
Registered charities do not automatically have waste and recycling collected with household collections. Like commercial organisations you are free to arrange your own collection services. If the premises are used "wholly or mainly for charitable purposes" then you can arrange collection through us.  If applicable you will be charged for collection costs, but not the cost of disposal (we cannot guarantee this will be the cheapest available option for every charity). If you would like to discuss charity waste and recycling collections with us please contact us.
