Free Recycling Allocation increases for March

Posted on: March 20, 2019

Your Bromley has recently surveyed those using the free recycling service supplied through our award winning partners First Mile and had lots of good feedback such as “works well,” “efficient”, “no fuss” One tip a happy business offered to others is to use only one piece of the sticker tape supplied for cardboard, and use unbranded other string or tape to wrap the package. A few businesses said they’d like the free allocation increased. We’ve done that for March and are looking at the longer term allocations. To join the service or to book new supplies, discuss collection times etc, please call First Mile on 0800 612 9894 or email

Recycling includes paper, cardboard, glass, tin cans, plastic bottles and clean plastic bags. A specialist coffee cup collection is also available and can be taken as part of your free allocation. Daily collections, depending on your need, can be arranged. The level of free service, funded by Your Bromley, is based on the rateable value of your premises and works best for businesses who arrange their own waste collection. Other waste collection services are available direct through First Mile, collected at the same time as your recycling, and all at competitive rates.

The best recycling companies (through First Mile) in the town centre are due to be announced any day now, with certificates being delivered to the winning businesses by Your Bromley Ambassadors. We’ll be publishing who the winners are in our next publication.
