FAQ for Trade Waste

I have a question about  trade waste services?

We usually work on 3 working days for deliveries. During peak periods this can be extended to 5-7 working days.

If you need to change how often your waste is collected, then please email orders@rtswaste.co.uk or call 020 7232 1711 and we will look into amending your collection schedule to better suit your needs.

If you need an additional bins or bin lift for your site please contact us by emailing orders@rtswaste.co.uk or by calling 020 7232 1711 and we’ll arrange this for you. All correspondence it would be useful to have your RTS Waste account number and site postcode.

If you find you’re often requesting additional bin lift, you may benefit from more or larger bins. If you’r not sure of the sizes, then we can arrange a free waste audit to visit your site to help you decide on the options available.

How to avoid a missed waste collection

RTS pride itself in a first class service and never intend to miss any collections. However it may happen for a number of reasons that can be avoided:

  1. If you try to make sure there are no obstructions to the waste containers.
  2. Please do not over fill bins as there are weight limits to lifting containers for Health and Safety reasons. 
  3. If our operators class the waste as contaminated with incorrect waste then your service may become interrupted as it may require a different fleet to collect that waste type. 
  4. Ensure that full access to containers with no parked cars or locked gates to prevent us getting to empty the container.

A Duty of Care or Waste Transfer Note is a legal document that businesses that produce waste are legally required to have. The document covers the business and the owner under the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
