Dundee Waste Management

The city of Dundee is the fourth largest city in Scotland and the UK’s 51st most populated built-up area. Around 148,000 people call it home and it has the second highest population density of anywhere in Scotland. It was once known for being a city dedicated to ‘jute, jam and journalism’, because of its historic industry affiliations but today it is renowned for its technological and biomedical industries.

Dundee accounts for no less than ten per cent of Britain’s digital entertainment industry and was named as Britain’s first UNESCO City of Design thanks to its contributions to a myriad of sectors including video games, comics and medical research. The city is home to two universities, Abertay University and the University of Dundee, and, since 2001, has been involved in a three-decade masterplan worth £1 billion aimed at reconnecting the city centre with the waterfront. This includes the opening of an £80 million Dundee Victoria & Albert Museum.

These rejuvenation plans and the city’s position as a leader in design and medical research mean that there is a continuing and growing need for effective management of both standard commercial waste and the collection and disposal of specialist and even hazardous materials. Business Waste is on-hand to help these businesses, whether they are one of the 395 large employers with at least 250 staff or the many small to medium-sized enterprises thriving in the area. There is no doubt that there is a growing need for commercial waste services given that the number of enterprises registered in the city increased by almost 20.9 per cent between 2011 and 2015.

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.
