Sheffield Waste Management
Sheffield is situated on the fringes of South Yorkshire, bordering Derbyshire and the peak district. It is a large industrial city with a population of 569,700, which rises to 1,569,000 when combined with the local metropolitan area, making it the third largest district by population in the UK.
Sheffield’s industrial heritage goes back to the middle ages, but it was steel that put the city on the map. In 1740 the crucible manufacturing method was introduced from Asia which allowed for better quality and stronger steel to be mass produced for the first time.
This led to other innovations, including the introduction of Sheffield Plate, which fuses a thin layer of silver onto a copper ingot. This allowed for the mass production of silver plated items which looked the same as their hand made solid silver counterparts, but cost significantly less.
However, by the early 1900s the city was in decline, silver plate items were no longer fashionable and plate factories began closing at a record rate. The decline was temporarily reversed by the onset of WW2, when Sheffield’s steel mills were used to manufacture weapons for the allied war effort.
But the post war years were not kind to the city, steel production is labour intensive and Sheffield’s mills were unable to compete with cheap foreign imports. This led to a reduced amount of coal from the local coal mines, which were also forced to close. By the 1980s the city was in full decline, with high levels of unemployment and poverty.
Fast forward to today and Sheffield is on the up once again, a massive regeneration project has breathed new life into the city. Run down terraces and empty factories have been replaced by new public squares, gardens and galleries. And the local economy has been given a boost by the opening of Sheffield’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre, which has attracted big name companies including Boeing, Rolls Royce and McLaren Automotive, to open research and manufacturing facilities nearby.
All this innovation and the introduction of new state of the art materials brings new challenges to the way waste is managed in the city. High tech manufacturing creates a lot of specialist waste materials which need to be processed properly to reduce the environmental impact of the new factories on the environment.

Waste management Sheffield
With a range of modern factories using a number of advanced production techniques, Sheffield companies have unique recycling challenges. At Business Waste we can help you meet those challenges by developing a structured plan to remove and recycle your waste using state of the art recycling processes. Get in touch with our recycling team today and we’ll review the kind of waste you create and develop an action plan to remove and recycle it.
Sheffield’s households produce over 235,000 tonnes of waste each year according to council energy recovery statistics. Landfill space is limited, inefficient and expensive. The “UK Cities Monitor 2008” placed Sheffield among the top ten best cities to locate a business today and third place for greenest reputation. In a diverse and rapidly developing city, waste management becomes a complex problem.
