Trade waste

Commercial waste collections

We have no plans to stop collections of trade waste / recycling.

The City of Edinburgh Council stopped trade waste collection service from 1 July 2016. This has led to 'cold calling' of Midlothian businesses with misleading information. If you have any concerns, please email us.

We can collect waste and recycling from local businesses. The cost is based on your own business need.

Bulky uplifts

Special uplifts can help you dispose of bulky items. The price depends on the size, type and number of items.

This service is only available to our Trade Waste customers. Other businesses should contact their own trade waste collection provider for more information.

Commercial hazardous waste collection

We cannot collect hazardous waste.

Hazardous, or special, waste - as classified by the EU hazardous waste directive - requires special collection, treatment and disposal. Normal waste collection bins cannot be used.

For information on what waste is classified as hazardous, please visit SEPA's website.
