General waste

General waste is everyday rubbish that cannot be recycled but doesn’t require a special container for disposal. This kind of waste is likely to make up the majority of what you throw away. We ensure your general waste goes to a facility to be converted into heat energy and not to a landfill.

ODS offers a range of ways for your business to dispose of general waste. We provide bins from 240 - 1100 litres as well as collection sacks for businesses with limited storage.  For larger businesses, we can supply RoRos and skips, as well as compactors to help reduce waste bulk.

Collections are available Monday to Saturday, between 6am and 9pm, dependent on location.

If you are unsure which service you require, our expert team can advise on what container and service would suit your requirements by providing a FREE business waste audit. Call us on 01865 335 400 or fill in the enquiry form below.

What happens to your waste?

General waste is disposed of at an Oxfordshire Energy Recovery Facility (ERF). This waste is incinerated and converted into heat energy that is fed into the national grid to power local homes. Disposing of general waste through an ERF is better for the environment compared to disposing of it at a landfill site.

I have received great services from Commercial Waste Contract management particularly from Emma. She has been an amazing help to me and my business in sorting many various things out, and her support was paramount. She has without a question sorted problems out, quickly and smoothly, such things include: waste management.

Alicja Szurek, Polish Kitchen

I would like to express my thanks for the way the Commercial Waste Team at ODS dealt with an unexpected & sudden requirement for a fairly large amount of waste to be removed at extremely short notice from our College site.
Everything went smoothly, from the initial contact to the removal & all the staff I had dealings with were very professional & also friendly. We will definitely use ODS again!

Michael Wender, Head Chef, Merton College

They are always very communicative and respond promptly to queries which are always handled quickly and efficiently. I would particularly like to thank Andrew Fagan for all his support and advice over the years.
I would have no recommendation in recommending their service.

Kenny Cox, St Cross College

Always an excellent service with matters being dealt with quickly and efficiently.
