Swindon town boasts a rich tapestry of geography, history, and modernity. The ancient human settlement, which is referenced as Suindune in the 1086 Domesday Book, emerged as a strategic location at the crossroads of major transportation routes. In more modern times, these include the M4 motorway and a mainline railway station, making it easily accessible from London and other nearby cities.

For such a historically rich area, recycling and waste management is essential for making sure the city’s streets and parks stay clean of waste. By treating commercial and residential waste responsibly, residents and businesses in Swindon can help to safeguard public health and keep the environment tidy.

As with most of the Southwest of England, Swindon draws visitors with its unique blend of history, easy access to nature and other contemporary offerings. Swindon's history is deeply intertwined with its transformation from a small market town into a thriving industrial centre during the 19th century. It played a pivotal role in the expansion of the Great Western Railway, and remnants of its proud railway heritage can still be seen at the Swindon Steam Railway Museum, a popular attraction for history and rail enthusiasts alike.


This economic diversity ensures a dynamic atmosphere and provides ample opportunities for both residents and businesses, but also generate a great deal of business waste. At Hills Waste Solutions, we are proud to serve Wiltshire as a dedicated local waste management service provider offering dependable and sustainable waste management services that support local businesses.

Improving sustainable local waste disposal in Swindon.

Swindon’s recycling rate  was just under 40% in 2017-18. With the national average recycling rate of 44.6% Swindon ranks 231st place among 353 regions. Furthermore, with waste production per capita an average of 397.3 kg per person, Swindon Borough Council is currently  implementing its 2019-2029 Waste Strategy, aiming for a 60% recycling target by 2029.

The council has since launched several initiatives to promote waste sorting and reduction, such as the weekly collection of food waste and a separate collection box for plastic-only recyclables.

At Hills Waste Solutions, we want to help the businesses of Swindon to recycle more. We believe in recycling as much waste as possible and diverting waste away from landfills wherever possible, using landfill only when there are no viable alternative solutions. We are also keen to generate energy from waste wherever possible too.


Commercial waste management in SN1

Businesses in Swindon, like businesses everywhere, produce a range of waste types. Of course, it depends on the type of business, but some of the most common types of commercial waste generated in Swindon include general waste, mixed recycling, glass, food, cardboard, plastic and electronic waste, as well as some hazardous materials. 

While domestic household waste is collected, treated and disposed of by the local council, all businesses must arrange for their commercial waste to be collected by a registered waste disposal contractor. Businesses in Swindon are required to manage their recycling and waste responsibly, and have a legal duty of care to make sure that any waste they produce is disposed of safely and in compliance with the law. Failure to do so could result in legal consequences, so it is vital to select a responsible contractor you can trust to ensure your commercial waste is dealt with compliantly.
