Waste Management Barrow-in-Furness

Barrow-in-Furness is an industrial town situated on the South-West edge of Cumbria. Surrounded on three sides by the Irish sea with the stunning Lake District to its North, the town boasts many listed Victorian buildings, and on its outskirts, the ruins of Furness Abbey. The town and surrounding area is home to 69,000 residents and has a long manufacturing history. Despite some decline in this area over the past 60 years, much work is being done to regenerate the environment and economy of the town and surrounding local areas. Today, employment is spread across a range of areas, primarily manufacturing, wholesale and retail trade, construction and education.

Waste Disposal

Recycling has never been a more popular method of disposing of waste. Reducing your companies carbon footprint can have a significant impact on the reputation of your business, as well as a positive impact on the local environment. With a lot of local development taking place in Barrow-in-Furness, staying on top of recycling can be difficult for some growing businesses and organisations. Business Waste promotes a ‘zero waste to landfill’ policy, with a range of options for businesses to make the best use of their waste including plastic, glass, e-waste and food recycling. Our trained professionals can advise you on the best methods of recycling for your business and provide you with the correct recycling bins to sort your waste.


Existing employers such as BAE Systems, GlaxoSmithKline and Centrica have development and investment schemes scheduled to take place in the town from 2017-2020. A highly anticipated 60-acre development at Barrow Waterfront will include a 650-home marina village, 350-berth yacht marina and new business park, bringing around 1500 jobs to the area. Improved infrastructure made possible through Barrow Regeneration means better access for businesses, as well as improvements to local education and colleges. This, coupled with the rebuild of Furness College, means retention of young people in the area is expected to increase, with a 12 per cent increase over recent years of those staying to work in the local area.

Development and regeneration inevitably cause challenges for the infrastructure around services, particularly trade waste. More people and businesses bring more waste, meaning increased demands for the recycling and disposal of it on local waste management resources.

  • Can I add an additional bin to my service?

    Yes, of course. We can provide extra bins for new waste streams to encourage recycling. Or if you’re simply producing more waste of the same type, we can add an extra or larger bin to your delivery and collection services if you’re at capacity.

  • Do you supply a duty of care certificate?

    Yes, we provide a duty of care certificate (also known as a waste transfer note (WTN)) free of charge as part of your service agreement. This is included for free every time we collect any type of waste from your premises. Duty of care certificates are a legal requirement and licensed waste carriers can complete them for free – so you should never be charged for one.

    Find out more about them in our guide to waste transfer notes.

  • How often will my bin be emptied?

    We offer our customers a choice of daily, weekly, or fortnightly collections – so your bins are emptied as often as you want. Our expert team can advise on the correct waste collection schedule based on the type and amount of waste you produce and your business needs – such as your bin storage space and location.

  • What time will my bin be collected?

    Bin collection times vary depending on your location, waste type, number and size of bins, and other factors. We work with all our customers to ensure your waste is always collected on time when it’s suitable for you and the licensed waste carrier. We can work around access times to arrange collections at convenient times.

  • What type of wheelie bins are available?

    A range of two and four-wheel bins are available to store all sorts of waste on your premises. Explore our bins to see all available bins and information about what types and amounts of waste they can hold.

    For any questions and answers about wheelie bin weight limits, sizes, locks, and anything else – read our bin FAQ guide.

  • How can we reduce our waste?

    There are many ways to reduce the amount of waste we produce as individuals and businesses. A waste audit can highlight where you’re producing lots of waste as a starting place to cut down. Simple steps to reduce waste include efficient purchasing, buying reusable products, and recycling as much as possible. For more tips, read our guide about how to reduce waste.

    If you have specific questions about reducing a certain type of waste, find the relevant page in Your Waste.

  • Do you collect any type of waste?

    Yes! We can collect a wide range of waste types in various amounts from all sorts of businesses. From general waste to popular glass, paper, and packaging recycling – as well as specialist waste streams such as clinical, hazardous, and pharmaceutical waste – we work with licensed waste carriers able to safely collect all such types.

  • Is Business Waste ISO certified?

    Yes, Business Waste has received Alcumus ISOQAR certification for:

    • ISO 9001: 2015 – Quality management systems
    • ISO 14001: 2015 – Environmental management systems

    These are both in the scope of registration for the provision of waste management brokerage.

  • What is ISO certification and why is it important?

    The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an independent, non-governmental group that uses experts to set global standards for providing innovation and solutions to worldwide challenges. ISO certification confirms a management system, manufacturing process, service, or documentation procedure meets the requirements for standardisation and quality assurance.

    ISO certification is provided by a third party – in our case Alcumus ISOQAR, which provides UKAS accredited ISO certification. The standards provide benchmarks for businesses to meet, ensuring achieving ISO certification demonstrates a well-run, stable business that’s ready to grow. There are more than 20,000 management standards, but the two we’ve achieved provide the following benefits:

    • ISO 9001: 2015 – helps put our customers first.
    • ISO 14001: 2015 – reduces our environmental impact.
