The Richmond upon Thames’ Recycling Solution – Cleaner, Greener and Saves You Money Too!

Richmond BID operates an area-wide recycling scheme open to all BID levy paying businesses through waste contractor, First Mile.

Helping Your Finances

Richmond BID members receive an allocation of FREE mixed recycling services plus a subsidised glass recycling service.

In addition, members have access to BID-negotiated discounts on a vast array of waste and recycling services.

Helping Your Environment

We help members recycle more, so that NOTHING goes to landfill.

Because collections are made twice per day in Richmond upon Thames – with a 99.6% success rate – the streets are guaranteed to be cleaner and safer.

Consolidating collections to a single supplier means less traffic, less pollution and much healthier air quality.

Helping Richmond BID

Branded recycling sacks, stickers and leaflets will ensure that residents, visitors and staff are aware of the environmental benefits and that Richmond BID members get the well-deserved credit.

Helping You

We provide streamlined invoicing and reporting, easy to access support systems and a dedicated account manager. You can get on with running your business while we take care of your waste and recycling.
