Trade recycling and waste collections

Torfaen County Borough Council operates a Trade Waste Collection service for local businesses. Businesses are obliged to make sure their commercial waste is disposed of properly in relation to the ‘Duty of Care’ under the Environmental Protection Act. A registered waste collection service must be used.

If your business generates waste, you must make sure you prevent waste escaping by suitably containing it.

There are a variety of collection methods available including:

  • sacks in rolls of 50
  • standard 240 litre wheelie bins &
  • larger 1100 litre bins

We also offer a weekly segregated dry recycling collection (glass, plastic, cans and paper) and options for the recycling of cardboard.

A multi collection service of more than one collection per week is also available by prior arrangement. All collections are subject to a charge and are based on the customer’s individual requirements.

If you have any queries or require further information about Trade Waste Collections Service including a quotation based on your specific request please contact Torfaen Business Direct on 01633 648735 or email
