Leighton Buzzard Waste Management
Leighton Buzzard is a small and quiet town in Bedfordshire populated by 37,000 people. With larger towns and cities such as Luton, Milton Keynes and Aylesbury nearby, it has largely managed to maintain its reputation as a traditional market town. Instead of Starbucks, Costa and McDonald’s, the high street consists of mostly independently run coffee shops, cafes and boutiques. Instead of showing a stream of Hollywood films at a chain cinema, they show selected films at the Leighton Buzzard library theatre. They mix their big name shops along the Waterbourne Walk with charity shops such as Oxfam and the British Heart Foundation.
The quiet, community feel emanating from every corner of town has largely contributed to two of the biggest events that have occurred in Leighton Buzzard. First the Grand Union Canal, that stretches 137 miles, from Hertfordshire to Birmingham, was first opened in Leighton Buzzard. The newly built bike paths take riders to canal side pubs such as the Grove Lock and the Three locks, and to some of the most beautiful and quaint villages in the south of England. The villages of Mentmore, Ledburn and Crafton – the last being almost impossible to find if you don’t know where it is – look, from a distance, like a few houses surrounded by acres of woods and farmland.
The famous Great Train Robbers of 1963, including the infamous Ronnie Biggs, chose an area between Ledburn and Mentmore – only 5 minutes from Leighton Buzzard – to stop a postal train and rid it of £2.6 million – at the time, it was the biggest train robbery in history.
What were once deserted roads, however, are now busy with cars either driving to or departing the Leighton Buzzard bypass. Residents understand that such roads make it easier for people to travel to and from work. However, the once clean verges are now filled with the rubbish and waste people throw from their windows.
Equally, companies such as Travis Perkins are taking advantage of the area’s sand quarries, and find it difficult to know what to do with all their waste when they are working so far out in the sticks. They can recycle some of it, but it is not easy as it costs money and time. This is where Business Waste can help.
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.
Business Waste offers commercial waste services for business and commercial organisations throughout the Leighton Buzzard area.
Business Waste collects and recycles electronics, wood, cardboard, bricks, metal, paper, glass and over 50 types of plastics. No matter where you are in Leighton Buzzard, we can recycle and provide waste management for any type of business. We make recycling our business so you don’t have to. All you need to do is call us and arrange a time convenient to you for collection. From sorting the waste into the appropriate sections to taking it away – we do all the hard work.
We can provide your business with waste management bins such as front end loaders, rear end loaders, wheelie bins, roll offs, compactors, commercial waste bags and skips.

Service is really good, had many problems in the past with previous suppliers however since been with Business Waste I have not had any problems what so ever. From the start of the agreement the sales team was really helpful and helped with my requirements. I am in a very tricky location with not much room to store a container however I was provided with many options from the sales rep to accommodate my requirements. Customer Service from the staff is outstanding. Definitely recommend 100%.
Great friendly service and really helpful staff!
