COVID-19 – Continuing Compliant and Sustainable Waste and Recycling

B&M continues to closely monitor the impact of COVID-19, and have acted quickly and responsibly in line with government guidelines, whilst continuing to stay compliant and providing a sustainable waste and recycling service as we welcome our customers back.

We are continuing to make every effort to limit the spread of the virus whilst maintaining our high standards of services. Our sites have implemented measures to prioritise health and limit exposure to our employees and customers.

Whether you are a new or existing customer, B&M Waste can offer a streamlined contactless service from start to finish including online waste audits, portal accessible documentation and webchat.  Our employees are safe and compliant with social distancing and can continue to provide a best in class service. 

We have also introduced a number of new products and services to keep our customers safe, which you can find out more about here.

Welcome Back

With the majority of our services now re-mobilised we want to wish our customers a very warm welcome back, and ensure you that we have measures in place to ensure maximum safety including, masks, gloves, sanitising units. Where possible our staff are holding meetings via video conference to continue to support your business requirements. We are no longer providing contracts and all signatures will be required electronically.

Remaining Compliant

  • We are continuing to comply with the relevant regulations.
  • We have increased our hygiene protocols across our offices and workspaces, wipes are provided to clean down work areas, sanitising stations have been introduced and awareness posters on all buildings and throughout the offices.
  • Our drivers will avoid contact with you and your employees. If they arrive on-site and there are people present and social distancing cannot be done, the driver will remain in his cab.
  • We are offering clearance services to our customer base to ensure their premises are kept clean and avoid other potential H&S risks.
  • Waste should be placed outside wherever possible to ensure there is no close human interaction.
  • We will no longer enter buildings without prior notification/advanced risk assessments.
  • Please inform us if you are isolating or your site has been exposed to the virus
  • Our staff are taking precautions and only attending work if they are fit to do so
  • We will not empty bins that appear to have discarded PPE in
  • We will not hand over tablets, mobile phones or documentation and will sign these on your behalf
  • Waste from locations with possible cases of COVID-19 and waste from cleaning of areas where possible causes have been identified should be double bagged, using a strong rubbish bag. These bags should be tied and stored for at least 72 hours or they will need to be moved as Category B infectious waste (in orange bags).


We will continue to be proactive in helping our customers improve their environmental impact, providing video waste awareness and segregation training and environmental reports which calculate the amount of carbon that is offset by diverting waste from landfill. We will continue to operate as normal as possible with compliance and sustainability at the forefront of everything we do.

Should you have any questions with regards to the ongoing support of your business waste management or if you are worried or confused about what to do with your waste; contact your Account Manager or our helpful Customer Relations Team on 0330 1234 100 or email
