Why is Waste Management in Bedford important?
As the county town of Bedfordshire, Bedford has an example to set for the rest of the county. Once an agricultural market town in the Middle Ages, Bedford saw engineering advances in the 19th century, becoming an important commercial centre and growing into a bustling modern town. The place is a hub of diversity, home to the UK’s largest Sikh temple outside of London, with a community relying on a sustainable future – a future in which Waste Management is crucial.
Bedford is a proud regional centre for sport, with Olympic connections thanks to Bedford & County Athletic Club and river sporting events. The River Great Ouse, one of the longest rivers in the UK, is an important natural commodity making the town one of the most active rowing centres in the country. It’s popular for boating, canoe racing and regattas, and lined with scenic embankment gardens enjoyed by locals and visitors.
The success of Bedford businesses relies heavily on the care of its surrounding environment. Bedford Park and Priory Country Park have both been awarded Green Flag status and host events that attract thousands of people and surges of custom; including Bedford River Festival, Proms in the Park and Bedford Regatta (Britain’s largest one-day river rowing regatta). These swells of activity increase waste production, which local businesses need to handle in compliance with Duty of Care regulations.
The Bedfordshire Authorities Waste Partnership are supporting strategies to help the community deal with waste properly, aiming to sustain Bedford’s continuous rise in recycling rates. In recent figures, Central Bedfordshire hit a 46.2% recycling rate – 19% below the highest performing county. All businesses are responsible for helping to increase this figure, and at Direct364, we’re happy to take that responsibility for you. Read on for all the ways we can help your business!
