BROMSGROVE District Council’s Business Waste team are sending out a reminder ahead of more businesses opening that they are available to help new and existing customers.

The Business Waste Service caters for a wide range of customers including, offices, sports grounds, other councils, small independent businesses and charities.

Now that businesses are reopening the service is encouraging those who need help getting back to business as usual to get in touch for a solution for removing their waste.

Martin Roche, commercial waste executive manager, said: “Whilst our customers were staying at home and doing their bit to help the country tackle Covid19, we made sure they didn’t need to worry about incurring a single charge for waste they weren’t making.

“We all make waste, and we all need someone to take it away but it’s not something we like to think about, and businesses are no different. Now that the easing of restrictions is fully underway, we want to remind businesses out there that we’re here to help you get back to business as usual.

“Signing up with us will mean you’re fulfilling your duty of care to dispose of your waste properly and it’s one less thing to worry about as you get back on your feet. You can just focus on the more important and exciting parts of reopening.”

During 2020 the commercial service assisted with essential household waste removal; and helped over 200 of their customers by suspending or reducing the service requirements so that they were not get charged unnecessarily during the Covid pandemic.
