When it comes to office clearance and commercial waste disposal, you need to ensure that you follow the correct process legally and safely. Getting rid of company waste can be time consuming, costly and complicated—that is, if you don’t know how to go about it correctly.

The best action you can take to clear your London office responsibly is to hire a fully vetted and insured waste removal company. Clear it Waste specialises in disposing of commercial waste safely, efficiently and legally in and around London.

But how much does professional commercial waste disposal cost, and is it worth hiring a specialist company to do the work for you? Read on to find out how to organise commercial waste removal and whether you need a commercial waste disposal licence.

What is commercial waste disposal?

Generally speaking, commercial waste refers to any rubbish produced by a company or through any business activity held on business premises. This waste can include materials produced by commercial businesses such as agriculture, construction or demolition, and general industry activities. 

Commercial waste disposal refers to the act of removing waste products by following the legal guidelines set out by the UK government.

What are the different types of commercial waste?

Commercial waste should be categorised by the following:

  • Biodegradable waste
  • Chemical waste
  • Construction waste
  • Demolition waste
  • Electronic waste
  • Food leftovers

Clear it Waste is able to collect all types of commercial waste as part of its office clearance services in London.

Which materials are classified as commercial rubbish?

Materials classified as commercial waste can include:

  • Paper
  • Plastic 
  • Electronics 
  • Electrical material

Other types of waste require responsible disposal with specific guidelines, such as construction waste materials. All commercial waste needs to be disposed of in a particular way—it can’t simply be thrown out with regular domestic waste.

What is the correct way to dispose of commercial waste?

Businesses have a legal responsibility to dispose of commercial waste correctly and safely. The easiest and most reliable way to dispose of commercial waste is to hire a team of registered professional waste carriers, such as Clear it Waste. Here are a few tips on how to dispose of commercial waste properly:

  1. Keep waste to a minimum by reusing, recycling or recovering waste (as recommended by the Waste Hierarchy guidance)
  2. Sort and store waste in a secure place (ensuring to follow additional rules if you’re storing hazardous waste)
  3. Complete a waste transfer note for each batch of commercial waste that leaves your business premises
  4. Check if your chosen waste carrier is registered to dispose of commercial waste


Clear it Waste is a registered waste carrier company, with all staff fully trained to dispose of commercial waste legally and safely.

What are the different types of office commercial waste disposal?

When it comes to office waste clearance, you can choose from two different types of commercial waste disposal: one-off office rubbish removal and scheduled office rubbish collection.

1. Office rubbish removal includes removing all types of commercial waste from office furniture and fixtures to electronics, paper and other non-hazardous junk.


2. Scheduled office rubbish collection allows you to manage your rubbish and waste removal in a way that suits your schedule. Clear it Waste can undertake direct collections and schedule pick-up services.

You can schedule our services for a time that suits you, whether during the day or out-of-hours—our team is flexible and follow careful planning to ensure your office clearance and commercial waste removal runs as smoothly as possible.
