Smarter Recycling

Are you ready to take part in Smarter Recycling?

Wednesday April 26, 2023

We’ve simplified waste management with an area-wide scheme across the Harley Street BID and Baker Street Quarter, that will help your business cut costs and meet its green goals by minimising waste and increasing recycling rates. There’s an added benefit for the whole area too. The more businesses using our service the more we improve the area’s air quality by having fewer providers in the Quarter collecting rubbish. It’s a great way of reducing traffic too.

Smarter Recycling now has two scheme partners, First Mile and Recorra. In addition, we have negotiated preferential rates for Westminster City Council’s Commercial Waste Services. Using Smarter Recycling is one of the many ways you can help make the area and your business cleaner and greener.

Benefits of Smarter Recycling

With a host of tools and features to help boost your recycling rate, here are some of the fantastic benefits of using the Smarter Recycling service:

Environmentally Friendly – Uniquely the more businesses using the service means less vehicles and collections. We have already seen a 46% reduction in collection trips since launching the service in 2014, which we aim to increase as more businesses sign up to the service.

Financially Smarter – All businesses in the area qualify for preferential rates across all waste streams with BakerStreetQ and Harley Street members receiving exclusive member rates for further savings.

Zero To Landfill – All items that can be recycled are, and anything that can’t be is used to generate electricity.

Smart Reporting Tools – Through an online portal, you can access compliance documentation, monthly reports and training materials to help increase your recycling rate.

FREE Waste and Recycling Audit – Request a review of your existing provision at any time and receive improvement recommendations to increase your recycling rates and sustainability credentials.

Flexible Solutions – Every business is different and we know things can change, so you can add, remove or request one-off services to suit your business.
