Does any one know a good waste management company, now that am on business rates I have to sort waste removal, I did go to a local company who provide large bins but they won't take general waste unless it's separated, think you know what general waste guest leave after there stay, and I take up to 3 dogs, my let is in North Wales, Rotaman

We use Ash Waste in Chester - they seem to cover North Wales. They've been OK and we don't need to separate waste - they sort it at the depot, which makes it very simple for guests. https://www.ashwasteservices.co.uk/

We are based in Shropshire (so, not too far away) and for some years we used Biffa/Veolia. But we had the same sorting problem you describe.
Then Shropshire council offered us a "Schedule 2 Waste" collection service. It's just the same as the domestic collection our neighbours have, but we do not need to sort it. If our guests use the recycling boxes they are emptied free. It works well for us and costs us 250 per year... which is slightly less than the commercial quotation.
I wonder if a similar service is available in your area?

I'll look into that 'Lamb' sound good to me, if the my council is as understanding as they are in Shropshire.

We changed to Ash Waste services after reading the earlier post. It costs us 168 for 50 trade waste sacks which they collect weekly as and when we put them out. No sorting required, everything goes in the sack. Works much better for us, as we don't know from one week to the next exactly how much waste there will be, so putting the sacks out when we need to is much better. (You can have bins, but there was a standard weekly charge for those and they were much bigger than we needed).
It did take them a while to set up because the problem we have is most waste companies say our lanes are too narrow - even though we have huge agricultural vehicles, quarry trucks and low loaders along here with no problem - but they sorted us out eventually.
