Should I break it down?

Yes! Cardboard is bulky and takes up a significant amount of space in your waste bags. The quicker your bags fill up, the more pickups your business pays for. Properly breaking down your business’ cardboard will reduce the number of pickups you need, thereby lowering costs.

Why should I recycle food waste?

It’s the law in Scotland if you are a business producing 5kg or more of food waste per week that it should be recycled.

Don’t risk not complying and a £10,000 fine! Also having it as a separate waste stream will also prevent contamination of other waste helping with recycling of all your other materials.
