Gravesend Waste Management

Gravesend has undergone substantial regeneration since the High Speed 1 or Channel Tunnel Rail Link opened in 2007 to link Britain with Continental Europe. It is a popular home for Thames Gateway commuters and has a current population of over 66,000 people with an above-average population density of around ten people for each hectare of land. Its business focus used to be aimed at heavy industry but today revolves around the service industries.

The town offers all of the facilities expected of a popular local shopping district, including large stores and independent shops. These are complemented by a market hall which only closes for one day each week and a farmers’ market. Members of Thames tugboat crews traditionally live in the town, which is also home to the headquarters of the Port of London Authority Control Centre, which used to be called the Thames Navigation Service and plays a vital role in Thames shipping navigation.

Visitors are also attracted to the area to see Gravesend Town Pier, which was built in 1834 and is the oldest surviving example of its kind in the world. The pier is the site of a pontoon to allow medium and small craft to land and to the terminal of the Gravesend to Tilbury Ferry. Thanks to ongoing investment in the area and the town’s popularity as a commuter hub, there is no shortage of demand for businesses and services in the area. This means that there is also no shortage of trade waste being created, which needs to be dealt with responsibly to ensure the area stays looked after for generations to come.

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.

Waste management Gravesend

Gravesend is part of the Borough of Gravesham. This once had one of Britain’s worst recycling rates but a £4.9 million project has worked to transform it into one of Kent’s best. In the past, just 23 per cent of waste was recycled but this had shot up to 38 per cent by the start of 2015. This new-found commitment to recycling means that it is essential for local businesses to fulfil their own environmental obligations and to appeal to customers who are increasingly using recycling rates and green credentials as a differentiator when choosing between companies. Business Waste can ensure that this is as easy as possible for local businesses to achieve by offering efficient ways of collecting waste and services to deal with a wide range of recyclable materials from paper and plastics to glass and WEEE waste.
