How do sack collections work?

Our pay as you go sack service offers businesses flexibility and reliability, with zero-to-landfill and zero-commitment.

Sacks come in quantities of 50, order online and select your preferred days and times for collection. Sacks will be delivered within 1-3 days of you placing an order. Then your collections will begin on the days and times you have selected.

The price you see for 50 sacks includes the cost of delivery and ongoing collections of your waste - there are no hidden fees. 

Leave full bags outside your premises at the scheduled times. To avoid fines and missed collections, please only leave sacks outside at the scheduled times. 

When you need more sacks simply log in to your online customer account to order more. You will receive a link to your customer account once you have signed up with First Mile.

How do bin collections work?

Our DMR Recycling wheelie bin collections are perfect for businesses with a larger amount of waste to be collected or who cannot leave sacks outside their premises. 

Order 1100L or 660L wheelie bins and we'll deliver them on the first day selected for collections. Collections will then take place on your chosen days and times thereafter each week. 

The price you see online is per bin and for the first week of scheduled collections. We will then invoice monthly for the number of collections you have had in the month. The cost includes the price of delivery, the bins and collections - there are no hidden fees. 

To avoid fines and missed collections, you'll need to have a safe and accessible place to keep your bins that our drivers can easily get to.

What happens to Dry Mixed Recycling after you've collected it?

Following the commercial dry Mixed Recycling collection service, the DMR Recycling is taken to our sorting facilities in London or Birmingham, or to one of our trusted partners Nationwide. 

At our award-winning facilities the waste is sorted to remove any possible non-recyclables and prepared to be sent on to our recycling partner facilities. 

At these facilities, the materials are washed, sorted into material types and recycled to be turned into new materials.

Are you council time-band compliant?

Yes, we are 100% compliant with all local council time-bands and restrictions. 

Order online and you can select the days and times that suit your business best. We will endeavour to collect at these times, but we will also take into account any time-band restrictions.

Should there be any conflicts, a member of the First Mile team will contact you to find an alternative time that works. 

To avoid any missed DMR recycling collections or fines, please ensure that you only leave sacks outside your premises at the days and times confirmed.

How do I get a Waste Transfer Note?

A Waste Transfer Note is a legally required document for businesses in the UK to prove that your waste is being dealt with responsibly and legally. 

We issue free Waste Transfer Notes once you become a customer with us. Once you have signed your document it is valid for 12 months from your last order. 

Once your sacks or bins have been delivered you will receive a link via email to access your Waste Transfer Note from your online customer account. 

Please ensure you read and sign your Waste Transfer Note and keep it to hand, as you may occasionally be asked to show it as legal proof to the local council.
