About Whitby

Whitby is a popular and historic seaside town on the east coast of North Yorkshire. Situated in the North York Moors National Park, it has a population of around 13,500 people and has a rich maritime heritage.

There have been recorded settlements here since the Saxon period but the erection of the Abbey in 657 AD marked the birth of the town. Divided by the River Esk, the town splits into two distinct halves joined by a swing bridge. The cobbled old town to the East, and the newer, but still very old, town across the bridge, generally known as West Cliff.

Attractions include the famous 199 steps which take people from the top of Whitby Abbey down into the old town’s maze of narrow streets and shops selling antiques, crafts, and jewellery made from locally mined Whitby jet.

There’s also the Dracula Experience, a nod to the Irish author Bram Stoker who stayed in The Royal Hotel and used the churchyard and town as his inspiration for his famous Gothic novel, which has led to countless more books, television programmes and movies about the blood-drinking Count.

And we can’t forget The Captain Cook Memorial Museum which celebrated the life of the legendary explorer Captain James Cook, who started his adventures whilst living in Whitby.

Whitby is full of quaint tearooms, gift shops and characterful pubs. Popular businesses in Whitby include the world-famous Magpie Café, Whitby Seafoods and the Whitby Gazette newspaper.

Among the biggest events in Whitby is the Goth Weekend and Bram Stoker Film Festival, both of which swell the already impressive tourist numbers in this tourist hotspot.

Why use a waste management service?

All businesses and organisations produce waste. A commercial waste and recycling service helps make managing this so much easier. Your waste will be collected on a regular scheduled collection, treated and disposed of appropriately, giving you reassurance that your waste will not be illegally tipped.

Businesses have a legal obligation to manage their waste responsibly. This includes minimising your waste, sorting and storing waste, transferring and disposal of waste. Find out more about business waste responsibilities.

Dealing directly with a waste management company versus a waste broker can often work out cheaper because you miss out the ‘middleman’ and avoid the commission they add on.
