Web Copy - Busy Bins


Busy Bins needed fresh copy to compliment their new website. As an up-and-coming private waste collection service with ambition, they wanted a new brand voice that would be suitable for all their communications.

I developed this straightforward, warm and friendly tone with a touch of gentle humour. As a brand that doesn’t take itself too seriously, puns were very much ok.

Who Do We Help?

We currently look after households in Bury, Oldham, Rochdale and Salford although this is about to change as we’re set to expand across the UK through our franchise opportunities. As local heroes, we also help landlords and estate agents secure sales by clearing driveways and pavements to make a great first impression.

What Can You Put in the Bin?

As refuse removers we’re not too fussy about what we pick up, however, there are a few occasions where we draw the line:

  • We only pick up waste contained in the bin so make sure there aren’t any extra bags on the floor.

  • No heavy construction waste like bricks, rubble, plaster, cement and sand. General household waste only please!

  • We usually only empty your household refuse bin, not recycling bins. If general waste gets mixed up in your recycling bin we’ll gladly empty it out so you can start afresh.

Operating in this way means we can responsibly dispose of waste so it can be burned and turned into energy.

About / Why Choose Us?

[Meta description]

How reduced council waste collections started our journey towards a clean and tidy Britain.

Helping Households in a Street Near You

When Bury Council reduced the number of rubbish collections they offered we noticed our local streets looked a bit, well, rubbish.

Despite household’s best efforts to recycle, there was clearly a need for a private refuse collection service. Overstuffed bins were attracting unwanted neighbours in the form of maggots, flies, foxes and vermin, making a bad situation worse.

We wanted to give households another option that didn’t involve heaving black plastic bags down to the tip. And so Busy Bins was born.

Collections were initially only offered locally in Bury, but thanks to our reputation for providing a friendly, reliable service, we quickly expanded to cover Oldham, Rochdale and Salford. Today, we have a loyal customer base who know we’re always ready with a smile and a wave and that we’re as good as our word when it comes to collecting their bins.

With so much demand for additional waste collections across the UK, we’re excited to say that we’re looking to take our service nationwide with our franchise opportunities. If you or anyone you know is up for the challenge of taking on a Busy Bins franchise, point them in the direction of our Franchise Opportunities page.

“Very fast and efficient, great communication and excellent service. Couldn’t recommend enough.” Kate

“We wouldn’t be without Busy Bins now we have a newborn. No more trips to the tip, just put out the grey bin out each week and it's taken care of. Very good service too and their email response time for any queries is great.” Daniela

“Great service with a lovely cheerful, helpful lady on the phone and did exactly what they promised they would. Very happy to recommend.” Tracey

Where Your Rubbish Goes

As a fully licensed carrier we take your rubbish to a processing station which prevents it from ending up in a landfill site. From here, it’s sent on to a waste energy facility where your old nappies, plastic tubs and anything else you’ve thrown away produces electricity that’s fed back into the national grid.

Don’t Be a Stranger

Full Support

While you’re likely to be first to market, you won’t be out there on your own. Our friendly, professional team is available to offer you 360° support, including mentorship from me, Busy Bins founder, Josh Morris.

Tried and Tested

The business model works. I know because I’ve made the mistakes and ironed them out so you can start your franchise wrinkle-free with all the answers on-hand.

Nationally-Recognised Brand

Our story has been heavily featured in a wide range of national press including the BBC, The Times, Daily Mail, ITV News and Good Morning Britain to name a few. Because Busy Bins is nationally-recognised, potential customers will be more likely to take up your service knowing you’re part of a bigger, familiar brand.

An Affordable Opportunity With High Return Potential

There’s an affordable financial commitment to get your foot in the door and your business up and running. Everything you need to help customers sign up will be ready and waiting, including our slick online systems and automated payments. You’ll be ready to help your first customer sign up so you’ll start to see the returns from the very beginning. And with most of our customers coming back for more, your business will quickly build, generating strong increases in turnover year on year.

Need Not Apply

If you’re looking for a lifestyle franchise opportunity, this isn’t the one for you. We’re seeking people who are ready to make a long-term commitment and who will do what it takes to make their franchise a smash hit.
