Frequently asked questions
I currently use several specialist waste companies for my different types of waste, why should I change?
Having several waste collection companies can be a lot harder to manage. You probably have to co-ordinate collections on different days, check invoices from different suppliers with different systems, and of course you’ll be dealing with several account managers who all have their own way of doing things.
Choosing to work with us means you have one dedicated account manager who is your single point of contact. They will really get to know your business, to understand your waste needs and can give you practical advice and information to meet your needs. Our collection service is very flexible so we can increase or decrease collections when you need them, not when your current supplier tells you they will be there.
In addition, by dealing with just one company, we provide a full reporting services for all your waste – for example, you’ll be able to see how your cardboard waste is increasing or decreasing just as easily as you’ll be able to see how your general waste is going down and how much glass waste you’re now sending for reprocessing.
I’m nervous about putting all my eggs in one waste basket
Don’t be, thousands of different companies across a whole range of sectors trust us to look after their total waste management. We’re seen as a trusted supplier and a safe pair of hands by many well-known organisations.
Among them are JLL – including its prestigious International Quarter London (IQL) development in Stratford, and the First Central 200 (FC200) complex in Park Royal, West London. Other total waste management service customers include the LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort, Southside Shopping Centre in London, and Brighton Marina, together with the Forest Green Rovers, the world’s greenest sports venue and Silverstone, home of British Motor Racing.
They know that our experience and expertise delivers the most cost-effective and reliable solutions, and our proactive approach will make a real difference.
Won’t having a total waste management service be more expensive?
No, the fact we can manage all your different waste streams under one roof means we can streamline all your collection and disposal needs.
We tailor our services to your needs – not ours – so you get the best possible value.
We’ve also helped many of our customers to save thousands of pounds and improve recycling targets by restructuring the way they dispose of their waste.
One of the services we offer is a waste audit to identify items that might have a value or help reduce your disposal costs.
For example, food waste is often thrown away in general waste bins but it is actually very heavy. Therefore removing it and sending it to Anaerobic Digestion (AD) instead will reduce your general waste disposal costs.
I want to encourage my employees to be more aware of recycling, how can you help?
We work very closely with customers to help them support recycling messages and make it as easy as possible for their employees to do more.
- By organising roadshows, Waste Awareness Days and online training
- Helping set up Green Teams and groups of Waste Champions
- Sharing our expertise advice via sustainability newsletters
- By making sure recycling bins are clearly marked and positioned in busy areas where employees can easily find them
- Developing posters, in different languages if necessary, to make recycling information simple to follow
- Providing tailored waste management handbooks for tenants and employees so they understand more about the benefits of recycling
- Inviting customers to our treatment facilities so they can see for themselves the benefits of recycling and how we treat their waste
- Enabling customers to share statistics about improving waste management with their employees so they can see what a difference they are making
- Rewarding staff by entering their successes into awards. In 2019, nine Grundon Waste Management customers won prestigious Green Apple Awards for Environmental Best Practice
Compliance is really important to our business, how can you help?

Staying on top of waste legislation can be challenging and that’s why, if you work with Grundon, we promise to keep you compliant at all times. We believe there is no better solution that to have a team of waste experts at your disposal and whether it’s empty aerosols, out-of-date chemicals, tins of paint or lithium batteries that you need to get rid of, we can manage that process safely and compliantly, giving you complete peace of mind.
