This service is about helping you to minimise waste. Recycling collections for your business can be easy to set up, with the help of your local BID. Reducing, reusing and recycling your waste will lower your waste collection and disposal bills. These savings will increase as the cost of disposing of waste to landfill continues to rise. You can promote a positive and responsible image to your customers by implementing recycling practices for your business.

Your local BID will provide a recycling service that meets the needs of SMEs in your area.


The recycling services you are offered will depend on where your business is based.

BIDs currently support a range of programmes on Waste Collection and Recycling, with this project extending both the scope and reach of this recycling through increasing the number of SMEs involved, and through extending the programme to include a wider range of materials collected and recycled.

Through Smart Green Business, you can recycle some or all of the following: paper and cardboard, food and organic waste, plastic, metals and glass.


By taking advantage of the recycling scheme in your BID area, costs to your business can be reduced and the waste sent to landfill unnecessarily can be avoided. Through this recycling programme you can be part of the solution and help London prevent the 7 million tonnes of commercial and industrial waste going to landfill.

For more information about how to take advantage of the recycling programme in your area, contact your local BID or the Smart Green Business Management Team.
