A Nuneaton and Bedworth recycling centre is offering a helping hand to the borough’s business community with the launch of a new waste and recycling drop-off service.
Aimed predominantly at Small and Medium Enterprises (SMES), micro businesses and sole traders, the new service at Judkins Recycling and Reuse Centre in Tuttle Hill kicks off on September 5.
Companies can apply for a 12-month commercial recycling permit or ‘pay-as-they-throw’ depending on business needs and the volume of material being generated.
Cllr Jeff Clarke, Chair of Warwickshire Waste Partnership said: “Judkins is the 9th Warwickshire recycling centre to offer this popular service and we are delighted to be working in partnership with the Judkins site operator, FCC Environment.”
Cllr Philip Johnson, Chair of Warwickshire County Council’s Communities Overview & Scrutiny Committee, said: “This affordable service is a boon for socially and environmentally responsible local businesses, and will undoubtedly be welcomed across Nuneaton and Bedworth.”
As well as business waste, householders bringing charged-for domestic waste and non-domestic waste can also take advantage of the Pay-as-you-throw scheme. Meanwhile ‘free’ tipping of domestic waste from passenger cars and permitted vehicles will continue unaffected alongside the new paid-for scheme.
The 12-month, £40 Commercial Recycling Permits enable businesses to take recyclable materials into participating Warwickshire recycling centres. Materials include card/cardboard; glass bottles/jars; recyclable paper – newspapers, office paper, leaflets; soft plastics; metal items/cans; textiles/shoes.
Pay-as-you throw prices at Judkins will be based on vehicle size and the type of material deposited such as general or mixed waste, soil and rubble or plasterboard.
