Overweight Charging

What is Overweight Charging?

As part of our commitment to ensuring minimum carbon impact, all B&M Waste collection vehicles have been fitted with a weighing system to weigh each bin collected. The system weighs the full bin as it lifts the bin to empty it and weighs the empty bin as it lowers it once emptied. The difference in weight is then calculated and this is the weight of your waste. All B&M Waste customers have a standard weight allowance for their industry factored into the collection charge, and anything over this is charged by weight.

The Certified European wide Measurement Instrument Directive technology allows accurate data (to +/- 5kg accuracy for 4 wheel and +/- 0.5kg for 2 wheel bins) be automatically recorded and electronically transferred to the B&M Waste computer systems, for the most accurate billing possible.

What are the benefits?

  • Visibility of offices/sites producing more waste than usual
  • Reduced Carbon impact, as we monitor weight of every bin, it allows more accuracy in us knowing when a vehicle is likely to be full, so we can ensure the most accurate planning of routes and highest delivery of service.
  • As an ISO 450001 and ROSPA Gold accreditation holder, H&S is very important to us. Identifying the extremely heavy bins allows us to minimise the risk this may pose in being lifted and work with you to organise additional or segregated waste collections

Want to see how it works?

Check out our video, showing how we record the weight of your bins…

What if my bin is empty?

We operate a standard collection charge including a maximum weight allowance per bin, which will apply if we visit to empty your bins. The introduction of overweight charging will not change anything in this respect. If you require a change to your service please contact us

Will my invoice look different?

You will notice an additional line on your invoice detailing the weight measured and the overcharge weight

How can I avoid additional charges?

We offer a free waste audit as part of your service where we will work with you to consider the items being placed in your bin and if Technically, Economically and Environmentally Practical to do so, we will implement separate waste collections for heavier, recyclable items such as food and glass. Not only will this avoid additional heavy weight charges, but your bespoke environmental report will show your improved environmental stance as more of your waste is recycled.
