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.
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.

Service is really good, had many problems in the past with previous suppliers however since been with Business Waste I have not had any problems what so ever. From the start of the agreement the sales team was really helpful and helped with my requirements. I am in a very tricky location with not much room to store a container however I was provided with many options from the sales rep to accommodate my requirements. Customer Service from the staff is outstanding. Definitely recommend 100%.
Great friendly service and really helpful staff!
