Wigan Waste Management

We understand how important waste management is in Wigan and are here to ensure your business continues running smoothly while also reducing any impact on the environment.

With a population of 103,608 (according to the 2011 census), Wigan is a town located to the north-west of Greater Manchester, sitting upon the River Douglas. It is bordered by Bolton, Warrington and Manchester. It is thought that Wigan first became a borough in 1246 thanks to the issuing of a charter by King Henry III. Towards the end of the Middle Ages, Wigan was one of four boroughs within Lancashire that possessed Royal charters (the others being Liverpool, Preston and Lancaster).

Since then, the town made popular by George Orwell’s The Road to Wigan Pier has gone on to thrive as an industrial hub thanks to its location along the Leeds and Liverpool canal. Today, it is home to many high-street stores in the Arcade shopping centre, as well as restaurants and bars, and is a popular commuter town thanks to its excellent transport links. This undoubtedly means a rise in commercial waste which local businesses need to find a way to tackle.

In 2014, Wigan was found to have the most improved recycling rate within the north-west and, from 2011 to 2013, had one of the best nationwide. In 2011/12, the borough was responsible for recycling 36.79% of its waste and this rose in 2012/13 to 48.52%. The result of these increased efforts was a saving to the community of over £1 million in disposal costs. It also meant the amount of waste being sent on to landfill was reduced by 17 per cent. At Business Waste, we can help business owners get on top of their recycling and waste management to keep companies compliant with the law and the area thriving for future generations.

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.

For example, there are over 50 types of plastic products that can be recycled, even if it may seem like one of the harder items to repurpose. This includes HDPE, which is used for milk bottles, LDPE which is used for supermarket shopping bags, PET which is used for drinks bottles, PS which is used for takeaway packaging and PVC which is used for clingfilm.
