The Business Recycling and Waste Services Commitment

The Business Recycling and Waste Services Commitment was set-up to help you improve your business customers' satisfaction with how their rubbish and recycling is collected and ultimately boost recycling rates.

What was the aim?

The commitment set out 12 principles that enable organisations to demonstrate their commitment to:

  • Making recycling easy
  • Providing value for money
  • Consulting on and clearly communicating their services
  • Reducing mis-use of household services
  • Reducing waste to landfill.

Who signed up?

Over 20 local authorities have signed up to the Business Recycling and Waste Services Commitment to add value to the services they provide their local communities.

What’s happening today?

The Business Recycling and Waste Services Commitment is not currently open for sign-ups. However, the knowledge and resources developed by the Commitment are in use by a number of new and exciting initiatives aimed at increasing the rates of food collection and improving the consistency of recycling collections throughout England:

Making more consistent collections

WRAP is working with government, local authorities and local communities to bring greater consistency to household waste and recycling collections in England and in turn increase recycling rates across the country.
