We are also able to help with recycling, hazardous waste, trade waste and skip hire, so that there is an ideal solution for every company.

Lancashire Waste Management

Lancashire is a county with a population of 1,478,000, meaning that there is a large population and a more pressing need for appropriate waste management and laws within it. Lancashire is broken up into boroughs, with Preston as its centre for administrative processes and Lancaster as its county town. It is important that these boroughs work together to continue to improve the economy and growth of the county, and this is something that they are doing in all areas.

Whilst Lancashire was a major centre for industry and commerce from the dawn of the Industrial Revolution and throughout the 19th Century, major cities Manchester and Liverpool broke off in 1974 when there was a huge boundary shift, and this has changed in more recent years. Lancashire boasts a number of major businesses, mainly in the manufacturing and building industries. The largest private sector in the area is the defence industry and nuclear power is a strong economic driving force as well.

With the county doing well in terms of industry and a new funding programme (The Lancashire Enterprise Partnership) set to bring in 17,000 new homes and 20,000 new jobs, dealing with the waste that these businesses and homes create is critical.

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.

This is why our zero waste to landfill policy is a useful policy for your business to follow, in order to maintain good standing in the local area. Lancashire district councils set their own collection days, with little room for flexibility, but with Business Waste you can arrange your own collections and waste disposal routine to suit the needs of the company.
