waste management designed
for the commercial sector

Businesses producing commercial waste have a Duty of care to consider alternatives to disposal of their waste - e.g. recycling. This waste must also be stored safely and securely, collected by a licensed waste carrier and receive a waste transfer note for each load collected.

It is easy to find a waste management company that will give you one general waste container to throw all of your waste into a single container at a cheap price, but that's not going to make you a sustainable business. With the 2011 Waste Regulation now in place it is the responsibility of all organisations to follow the waste hierarchy (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Recover and Disposal). From a waste management point of view, recycling is best practice. In addition many companies aspire to achieve and maintain UKAS ISO 14001 accreditation. Our solutions are a great way to do this.

Select provide service solutions to suit all commercial businesses, including: solicitors and accountants. Accountants and solicitors create a great deal of confidential waste therefore we always recommend our document shredding service in-addition to our general waste and dry mixed recycling service. Below is an example of the core services we would pair up for an accountant or solicitor:
