A new service of recycling and waste collection is available to Poole town centre businesses following an investigation and negotiations made by Poole BID and Meercat Associates Limited.

Poole BID works alongside Meercat Associates Limited to secure cheaper service contracts for its levy paying businesses. This includes merchant fees, telecoms, and energy supply as well as waste contracts and insurance. The new waste service contract will be provided by Biffa.

Justin Hundley-Appleton, Poole BID manager, commented: “We’ve been working with the team at Meercat for just over two years and they have already helped many of our levy payers to make savings across the board.”

The new agreements can often provide better costs for businesses due to the quantity of those signing up to use the schemes.

Helen Challis, partner at Quay Holidays and Poole BID board member, added: “Our waste contract has just come up for renewal so we liaised with the BID regarding a new quote from Biffa, it makes a great savings for us in comparison to our existing service.”

Businesses are encouraged to contact info@poolebid.com when existing waste contracts come up for renewal in order to receive a quote for these new services.
