Waste Disposal

Business Waste Bury offers organisations in the borough a full advice and management service, helping them to dispose of waste with the maximum possible commitment to recycling. Due to the fact Bury Council aims to recycle 60+ per cent of its waste per year, our waste management service also includes providing appropriate bins, and re-purposing a wide range of materials in our modern, efficient recycling facilities

Business Waste offers reliable business recycling solutions for Bury. Our in-depth local knowledge means we know the right recycling centres to take your waste. As well as letting you contribute towards protecting the environment, recycling can save businesses hundred of pounds each year in landfill tax rates.

Bury has two main local recycling centres, at Cemetery Road in Radcliffe and Every Street in Fernhill. We know exactly what can be recycled at each centre and plan our collections with that in mind. Business Waste aims for zero landfill; that means even if your trade waste can’t be processed at one of Bury’s local centres, we know the best place to take it for recycling.

We know that every business has its own unique waste disposal and recycling needs. We use locally based recycling services, giving you the best possible efficiency. Depending on your business’ needs, we can supply you with free recycling bins for specific categories of recyclable waste.

This will all be decided after Business Waste performs a free waste audit at your business.


Bury is the largest town within its administrative borough, with an estimated population of 78,723 people as of 2015. Recent decades have seen Bury develop into a vital commuter town for nearby Manchester. Large scale housing developments have taken place, seeing the population grow steadily. Strong transport connections such as the Metrolink rapid transit system and the M66 motorway mean it is well connected to neighbouring towns and cities, and the UK as a whole.

A major mill town producing textiles during the Industrial Revolution, Bury is now famous for its bustling open air market, a 13th century castle and various fine sculptures and other pieces of public art contributing to its rich cultural life. One of the town’s most notable business success stories is the Bury Town Black Pudding Co., which supplies Black Pudding to Harrods and major supermarkets.

A dedicated effort is underway to improve waste management in Bury. Since 2010, Bury Council has followed a Zero Waste Strategy with the aim of maximising the amount of waste that is recycled. As of 2014, 47.6% of bin waste in Bury was recycled, the third highest rate of recycling in the Greater Manchester Area. Nevertheless, Bury still ranked just 172 out of 352 British towns and cities for recycling. EU targets state that by 2020, member states should have reached a national level of 50% recycling and the town’s business waste management practices are key to achieving this goal.

With its strong links to Greater Manchester, people can sometimes overlook the fact that Bury is most definitely a thriving place in its own right.

Business Waste

Encompassing the towns of Bury, Prestwich, Radcliffe, Ramsbottom, Tottington and Whitefield, the borough of Bury has a rich mix of commerce, industry, culture and rural heritage.

Like many north west towns, Bury has reinvented itself since the demise of the UK textile industry and the shutting of the town mills. The removal of the mills and their chimneys have changed the skyline and left room to modernise and revitalise the town. A great example of this is the £350m shopping area opened in 2010 – The Rock.

As well as being a popular shopping area, Bury has a thriving evening and night time culture. The Council has a robust economic strategy to embrace its popularity as a place to eat, drink and socialise. Bury Town Centre gained Purple Flag status in both 2015 and 2016 – the first and only town centre in Greater Manchester to achieve this award. Purple Flag status acknowledges town and city centres that show excellence in managing their night time economy, providing entertainment in a diverse, safe and enjoyable environment.

It is quite certain that one of Bury’s most famous “sons” would greatly approve of its record for providing a safe place to visit. Sir Robert Peel – a British Prime Minister who originated from Bury – founded the Metropolitan Police, the forerunner of the modern police service. It’s why police officers at one time were referred to as “Peelers”. There is a Peel Memorial outside Bury parish church, and the Peel Monument stands proudly on Holcombe Hill, overlooking the borough.

Though it is moving with the times, and nurturing new business development, Bury is proud of its heritage too. Its traditional “World Famous” market still draws visitors from throughout the North of England. Its most famous export, Black Pudding can be found in shops around the UK, including London’s iconic Harrods.

Bury is also home to the East Lancashire Railway. At one time this formed the backbone of the industry in the region, connecting mill towns to trading centres and therefore forming the start of journeys around the world. Steam trains still run along the tracks, but now it is visitors from throughout the UK who ride the railway, rather than textiles.

    Bin collection times vary depending on your location, waste type, number and size of bins, and other factors.

We can work around access times to arrange collections at convenient times.

  • 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.
