reduce your waste costs

Northampton’s central location makes it a great place to operate a business. You are only an hour away from London, Birmingham, Oxford & Cambridge. The Town of Northampton has thousands of thriving businesses from a versatile set of industries ranging from food industry, automobile, manufacturing to tech companies worth £1.5 billion to the local economy.  As a hub of such versatile set of small and big businesses, there is incredible business potential that can be generated through networking with other local business leaders.

Northampton is transforming how it manages its waste and the long term goal is for no waste to be sent to landfill. We provide sustainable closed loop recycling services wherever possible, and when recycling is not an option, we transform this waste into energy that is used to power local homes and business. As well as using sustainable waste management options, such as source segregated recycling, there will always be general business waste, that can’t be recycled.

It is vital that businesses do everything they can to reduce waste in the first place and if you don’t know where to start with reducing waste, we can provide you with tips for reducing waste in your business.
