Businesses here, like anywhere else, are keen to demonstrate good environmental credentials by making sure that waste is managed responsibly and safely. That’s exactly what we offer.

Waste is recycled if at all possible and disposed of in the correct manner if not.

Harlow Waste Management

Harlow is a first-generation new town, built in Essex immediately after WWII to house bombed-out families from London and cope with the post-war population expansion.

Always intended to be self-sufficient in terms of employment, shopping and business, the town had two industrial estates that attracted electronics and pharmaceutical companies as well as light engineering firms, manufacturers and publishers.

Despite that intention, it became more of a commuter town in the 1980s thanks to its excellent transport links. Trains go north to Cambridge and south to Liverpool Street, linking with Jubilee line stations on the way. The London to Cambridge M11 motorway also passes to the east of the town and the A414, the main trunk road leading east-west through Essex and Hertfordshire, runs through it.

Around half of Templefields, the industrial estate on the north-east of the town by the Hertfordshire border, is now given over to retail. The other, Pinnacles, has remained commercial, with industrial, technical, scientific and office space alongside warehousing.

At the heart of the town, a large retail space attracts shoppers from a large catchment area. The original town centre, including the UK’s first pedestrian precinct, was built mostly in the 60s and is now in the process of being redeveloped. On the eastern edge of the town, a new enterprise zone is being built on the site of the former Standard Telecommunications Laboratories, where fibre-optic cables were first developed. All this industry and redevelopment is great news for the area but means that this town can expect to see trade waste grow over the coming years.

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 Harlow

The larger businesses on the two industrial estates have multiple waste disposal needs but there are also smaller groups of light industrial and retail units around the town, such as Staple Tye and Bush Fair. Retail premises create a large amount of packaging waste although much of it can now be recycled. Paper, cardboard and glass form the bulk of that, as well as plastics. At Business Waste, we can take care of your recycling needs so that you can prioritise your business.
