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.
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.
So, how can Bury’s abundant bars, restaurants, retailers and manufacturers keep pace with the mountain of waste produced each week? How do Bury businesses stay ahead of the stringent legislation on both waste management and recycling?
The answer is to ensure that general, commercial and specialist waste, are all disposed of by a company with a track record for cost effective services – Business Waste Bury.

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!
