Falkirk Waste Management

Falkirk is home to roughly 35,000 residents, making it one of the 20th most populous settlements in Scotland. Due to its location at the junction of the Forth and Clyde and Union Canals, the city rose to prominence as a centre of heavy industry during the Industrial Revolution.

Despite its association with heavy industry declining over the past 50 years, Falkirk remains the headquarters for Alexander Dennis, the largest bus production in the United Kingdom. It was also the birthplace of Johnston Press, which continues to produce the largest selling weekly newspaper in Scotland, the Falkirk Herald. Several residents are employed within the petrochemicals sector too for companies like Ineos, based in neighbouring Grangemouth.

In recent years, the local economy has been increasingly dependent on retail and tourism, with notable attractions including the Falkirk Wheel, The Helix, Callendar House, and the remnants of the Antonine Wall. The city is also a strong employer for the public sector and public services, in particular, the UK Child Support Agency, the National Health Service, and the Department for Work and Pensions.

With its diverse economy, strong infrastructure, and numerous cultural landmarks, the future certainly looks bright for Falkirk. However, one of the problems associated with growth is waste management, which the local authority has attempted to address with its Zero Waste Strategy. Even so, Waste (Scotland) Regulations 2012 puts certain constraints on businesses when it comes to food waste over 50kg per week along with metal, plastic, paper, card, and glass. Cost-effective and comprehensive business waste management in the area is crucial for the continued preservation of the environment.

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.
