A top place to base a business

Stoke started 2019 with some good news after being named the UK’s sixth-best city to base a business, beating Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester and London.

The ranking by card payment solutions provider Paymentsense looked at salaries, rents, employment rates and survival rates for new businesses.

Councillor Janine Bridges said at the time: “The Ceramic Valley Enterprise Zone is one of the fastest growing enterprise zones in the country and we have a number of employment sites ready for development.” 

With commerce centres including Great Fenton Business Park, the Genesis Centre on Innovation Way and numerous business and enterprise centres around the city, Gaskells are proud to provide the commercial waste collections that are needed by Stoke businesses new and old alike.

Choose a Container Type

Sizes range from 240 litre to 1100 litre containers with lockable lids available.

These are ideal for all types of business & commercial waste including general waste, cardboard, mixed recycling, food and glass.

Front End Loaders, or FELs, are the familiar kind of commercial lidded skips, suitable for large volumes of compactable waste, and especially for recyclable cardboard waste and other dry mixed recyclables.

Roll On-Roll Off, or Ro-Ro skips, are among the largest containers available for commercial use, suitable for the disposal of very large quantities of general waste and bulky materials like construction waste and scrap.

Trade waste disposal in Stoke

It’s important to know and obey the restrictions on trade waste disposal in Stoke, including: 

  • Rules against burning commercial waste in the open or to generate energy.
  • Rules against taking business waste to council tips at Burslem and Hanford.
  • Rules requiring waste transfer notices to be obtained and kept for two years.

 At Gaskells we not only provide you with the necessary paperwork to prove you dispose of commercial waste legally, we even give you a copy of our own Duty of Care certificate at the start of your contract, which shows you have also considered what happens to your waste after it is collected for disposal.

 We are committed to achieving 100% diversion from landfill – we process over 70,000 tonnes of waste every year at our own state of the art Materials Recycling Facility and any remaining non-recyclable waste is used for anaerobic digestion or Energy from Waste.

Non-household recycling rates in Stoke

In 2015-16 Stoke-on-Trent City Council recycled 3,291 tonnes of the 16,395 tonnes of non-household waste it collected – equivalent to 20% and placing Stoke 168th out of 351 local authorities in the UK.

We believe the city can do better, which is why Gaskells commercial waste collections offer reliable, cost-effective waste disposal that maximises recycling rates and minimises the number of tonnes sent to landfill.

There’s no obligation just for making an enquiry, and we will be happy to advise you on costs and collection schedules in your area.

Landfill sites in Stoke and Staffordshire

 As of 2014, four landfill sites were licensed to operate in Staffordshire, including the Newstead Landfill Site on Alderflat Drive in Trentham, Stoke-on-Trent, although this has not accepted new waste since at least 2005.

But whether landfill sites are located on our doorsteps and in our back yards, or in remote locations many miles away, we all owe it to the environment to do our bit to minimise the amount of waste that is avoidably sent to be dumped there.


Fly tipping in Stoke is falling

 The good news is that Stoke-on-Trent is improving its performance on fly tipping, with a significant fall in incidents in 2017-18.

Although there were still 5,846 fly-tipping incidents recorded by the local authority, that’s down from 8,374 the previous year – a drop of 30%.

Remember that under the Waste Duty of Care Code of Practice, you are responsible for disposing of commercial waste legally including after it leaves your possession – and you should work with a reputable commercial waste collector to demonstrate that you are meeting this obligation.
