All trade waste customers are billed at the beginning of each month for the upcoming calendar month, as billing is in advance. Dependant when your contract was started, your initial payment may be slightly higher as it may include a number of days from the previous month (eg if you signed on the 15th, you would be billed for the remainder of this month, plus the next month. This will revert to the stated cost on the contract from month two.

You will be given a scheduled collection day upon commencing your contract with Nationwide Waste Serivces. Your bins will be collected on this day between the hours of 06:00am – 18:00pm. Scheduled collection days are subject to change dependant on route alteration, and unforeseen circumstances such as traffic issues. Should this be the case with your collection, you will be notified as soon as possible by our Customer Service Team.

The night before your scheduled collection date you need to ensure the bins are placed in an easily accessible area for your driver, with no blocked access for your collection to be completed. Should this not be the case, you will need to contact customer services to rearrange the collection.
