Cumbria County Council has a vision of creating one of Britain’s fastest growing economies. This would mean making the most of a diverse and complex business environment in which world-class energy, manufacturing and engineering companies thrive alongside successful food and drink businesses and an abundance of tourism firms including holiday lets, catering to the 42.9 million people who visit the county each year.
This bountiful business community is likely to grow further in the future as the local authorities focus on creating a compelling and unique case for investors and companies looking for opportunities within the global economy. In particular, Cumbria is a county where forecasted investment is beating major urban conurbations and where tourism already generates around £2.62 billion a year.
The current Cumbria Strategic Economic Plan focuses on advanced manufacturing growth, a vibrant visitor and rural economy, excellence within the nuclear and energy industries and maximising the strategic importance of the major M6 Corridor. This involves the county council working with the Local Enterprise Partnership to boost the economic future of the area.
This all signals exciting times for the county in terms of business and economic growth, but the future is also likely to present some challenges in the form of dealing with an increasing amount of rubbish. Waste management Cumbria will be buzz words as the business community grows.

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!
