Canterbury and the surrounding area is famed for its beauty. With its museums, ancient churches and abbeys, and of course Canterbury Cathedral, it’s no surprise that an increasing number of people are flocking to the town and making it their home.
Exciting new developments and investment, such as the multi-million-pound deal to provide an Engineering, Design, Growth and Enterprise Hub for the town have poured in along, and Canterbury looks set for a period of continued growth. This combination of the new and the old, for a city made famous in Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales, to feature fresh developments of homes and businesses is what makes Canterbury one of the most attractive areas in the UK for those looking to move home.
Yet increased growth can pose problems as well as benefits, particularly when it comes to local services such as waste management. The district of Canterbury has only two recycling centres, with only one based in the city itself, leaving many citizens and businesses in need of a better solution to recycle and dispose of their waste. The editor of the local newspaper, the Kentish Gazette, even joked that the three main stories his paper covered were dog mess, parking and rubbish. An area of particular concern for residents, less frequent bin collections and council services have seen fly-tipping become more commonplace. With an influx of new people and industry to the town, the problem is only likely to get worse in the future, meaning businesses need to start thinking about how they will do their part to tackle the growing issue of trade 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!
