Why is Waste Management in Birmingham important?
Birmingham has a lot to be proud of. It’s the UK’s second most populous city with six universities (that’s right, six!), honoured home of Aston Villa and Birmingham City F.C.s and birthplace of heavy metal music. From medieval market town to big international player, Birmingham is now a commercial hub hosting major companies. The city’s economy has been known to be distinctively varied, and now benefits from a strong service sector with the highest level of entrepreneurial activity outside London. What a place for businesses to flourish!
The city is also environmentally important, with over six million trees and 571 parks – more than any other European city. Birmingham contains parts of the wider West Midlands Green Belt and hosts National Nature Reserve Sutton Park, the largest urban park in Europe. So many businesses to thrive and so much greenery to conserve – Waste Management has never been so important.
Birmingham businesses have some work to do when it comes to waste disposal and recycling. The city’s recycling performance sits towards the bottom of UK league tables, with a low rate of just 24.4%. Birmingham City Council now have a revised waste strategy in place, aiming for 70% of waste to be recycled by 2040 – that’s a worthy but ambitious goal which can only be achieved with the help of the city’s enterprises.
As the soon to be host of the 2022 Commonwealth Games, it’s important that Birmingham’s future is protected. Read on to find out how your business can help your city, and how Direct365 can help you.
