Free recycling collection

If you wish to get rid of your own commercial recycling via our Barrhead Civic Amenity Site please Icon for pdf register with SEPA as a waste carrier [59.94KB] and email the completed form to the Business Waste team.

All customers can use our Commercial Waste Recycling Centre free of charge. It's located at the Barrhead Household Waste and Recycling Centre.

Special commercial uplifts

A special uplift charge will be payable for any additional uplift to a trade customer. This will be added to the standard uplift charge for the container unless the waste isn't held within a waste container, in which case a no obligation quote will be given.

If your container can't be collected due to contamination, a special uplift charge will be payable for any additional uplift to a trade customer.
