Dumfries Waste Management

Dumfries is the primary town of Dumfries and Galloway and a thriving commercial centre with a large university student population. It has a population of over 31,000 people, which fluctuates according to tourist and student travel and which provides plenty of business to the local economy. Local industry is heavily centred around agriculture, forestry and light industry, with significant tourism and the thriving retail, leisure and entertainment centre of Dumfries itself. The public sector is also a huge local employer, with challenging waste management issues of its own due to its breadth of services.

Key local employers include Scottish Power, Dumfries and Galloway Council, Dumfries & Galloway college, University of the West of Scotland, Kellwood Engineering, the NHS, Gates Power Transmission, McAlpine, Tesco, Nivens and Third Sector Dumfries & Galloway.

Accessibility in winter months can be a challenge in this part of Southern Scotland, especially in outlying villages and hamlets, but Dumfries itself is well situated for road and rail networks and has five household waste recycling centres which are operated by the council. The A75 runs right through the town, linking up with the wider area and local towns such as Castle Douglas and Kirkcudbright.

The region was recently flagged up in a comment by Boris Johnson as needing investment, and local businesses are working hard in partnership to present the best visitor experience. Effective waste management plays a part in this, and Business Waste can help ensure that the streets are clean and business shopfronts look welcoming.

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.
