Commercial waste contracts

Businesses can set up a commercial waste contract with us to pay to get their rubbish taken away from their premises.

If you already have a contract with us to collect your rubbish, you can pay your bill online here (select "Commercial refuse" from the list of options on the page).

To find out your collection dates, please see your individual commercial waste contract, or contact us

Commercial waste disposal sites

If you don't have a contract with us to collect rubbish from your business, you can take rubbish to a number of waste disposal sites across Argyll and Bute - you can find out more about where they are, opening hours and charges on our Commercial Waste Disposal Sites page.

Waste (Scotland) regulations

Waste regulations introduced by the Scottish Government came into force in January 2014. The new Regulations are a key part of the Scottish Government’s zero waste strategy to eliminate waste and reach a target of 70% recycling by 2025.

Resource Efficient Scotland, a programme delivered by Zero Waste Scotland on behalf of the Scottish Government, is helping businesses prepare for the new Regulations. There are free resources available online to help businesses fulfil their requirements at

A leaflet from Zero Waste Scotland detailing the duties on businesses can be viewed or downloaded here - Zero Waste Scotland leaflet for businesses
