With an economy of over £8.3bn, businesses based in Bradford know that their home city can hold its own against Yorkshire neighbours Sheffield and Leeds.
Economic growth in Bradford has been exceeding both regional and national averages since as far back as 2008. The area now has over 15,200 businesses employing 192,200 people, and it has been chosen as the headquarters of high street names such as Hallmark, Morrisons, Santander and Yorkshire Building Society.
Bradford rose to prominence during the textile boom in Britain, and became known as “the wool capital of the world.” Indeed, Bradford is still a manufacturing leader, sustaining the 5th highest number of manufacturing jobs for the UK. It is home to 1,280 energy, utility and manufacturing companies.
Its city centre is also nurturing a thriving service and retail sector, but one of the features that make Bradford renowned throughout the UK is its impressive cultural economy. In fact, Bradford became the world’s first UNESCO City of Film.
The National Media Museum in Bradford city centre is one of the most popular tourist attractions outside of London, and Saltaire model village is one of only two World Heritage sites in Yorkshire.
Bradford’s heritage is also deeply rooted in the fabulous, unspoilt South Pennine moorland that surrounds it, which the Brontës made famous in their novels. Ideal walking territory, the top destination for many ramblers is the 45-mile circular Bradford Millennium Way which gives you a first-hand view of the lovely countryside that skirts the City of Bradford.
For a city so rich in industrial heritage, cultural diversity and environmental splendour, one of the top priorities has to be managing the waste produced by Bradford’s substantial industry and commerce base.
Fortunately, many Bradford businesses know they can rely on Business Waste Ltd to dispose of a wide range of waste materials effectively at a manageable cost.
How we can help Bradford businesses
The City of Bradford’s Metropolitan District Council takes a firm stance on making sure the area’s businesses meet their obligations to dispose of commercial waste correctly and regularly, including recycling as much as possible.
Bradford’s business rates do not cover the removal of waste or commercial recycling services, so the onus is on Bradford businesses to find a waste management partner who they can rely on, who also keeps costs down – like Business Waste Ltd.
We can make sure that Bradford deals effectively with “controlled waste” – the waste that is produced from factories, offices, shops, schools, hospitals and other businesses.
As a registered trade waste and recycling partner for Bradford, we can provide the reassurance of dealing with all commercial waste in the correct manner, providing a trackable service and all the required documentation to evidence business compliance.
If you are a Bradford SME, you may be interested to know there is help available throughout the region, offering advice and financial support on issues such as waste management, energy efficiency and water usage. Contact the local authority for details.
Please note: We’re unable to offer household waste collection or tipping services. Please see the residential waste hub section at the bottom of this page for help with this.

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!
