A culturally diverse area, the population of Basingstoke and Deane is estimated to be at around 173,860, according to 2015 statistics. It is the largest town in Hampshire. It was originally intended as an overspill town from London in the 1960s and is now more than six times bigger than it was in 1951.
There are an estimated 72,890 dwellings within the borough. Local attractions include Milestones Museum, The Vyne, Eastrop Park, The Anvil, Festival Place Shopping Centre and Willis Museum, along with the popular Basingstoke Market.
Basingstoke sits on the natural trade routes between the South West and London, making the large market town an important economic hub. It sits on the major interchange between Newbury, Reading, Winchester, Andover and Alton – making it a key influential area for businesses to operate.
In 2013, Basingstoke was found in government reports to be the 10th worst district in all of Britain for its recycling of household rubbish and ranked 343rd out of 352 UK authorities. Efforts have been made to improve this and of the materials taken to the household waste recycling centres (often referred to as the ‘dump’), more than 60% of waste is now recycled. This helps to reduce costs to taxpayers in the local area and saves them having to pay for the cost of disposing of any non-recycled waste.

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!
