Sunderland Waste Management

Following major urban regeneration in the 1980s and 1990s, Sunderland is now a thriving 21st-century hub. The derelict brownfield sites left behind when mining and shipbuilding ceased have been redeveloped, and the industries replaced with companies in the automotive, science, technology and service sectors. New shops, cafes, bars and restaurants have opened up, and the riverside now features up-market residential apartments. Nissan remains the largest employer in the region, with the factory now producing over 500,000 cars annually. Sites such as Doxford International Business Park have stimulated the local economy, and crowds regularly flock to the Stadium of Light, the home of premier league football team Sunderland AFC.

This growth of new industries has brought new challenges for waste management. Despite the diversity, businesses still have a legal requirement to store, dispose of and recycle all their waste safely and responsibly. Waste management processes came under scrutiny when the Environment Agency identified the old Ryhope Landfill as being a hazard to groundwater and the local coastline. In May 2016, the new Local Development Plan reiterated the need for Sunderland’s businesses to meet national guidelines for waste disposal and recycling.

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.
