The Principle town of Croydon within the Greater London Borough of Croydon is the next largest commercial district outside of central London and has excellent rail links to the capital, and towards coastal towns in the south east of England. It is also home to London’s only tram network which reportedly transports over 29 million people every year. Croydon town also has plenty to offer outside of its shopping centres, pubs bars and restaurants. The Airport Visitor Centre is one of Croydon’s most unique well known attractions, situated in the world’s oldest air traffic control tower and only open one weekend a month, so plan ahead! The Museum of Croydon is another must see, with its own art gallery and richly detailed local history exhibits. There is also the Turf gallery space, which offers workshops run by local artists, and plenty of outdoor attractions and parks. Coombe Wood, which is set in well kept grounds and has picturesque views and an on site cafe. Wandel Park, which features a river, a playground and a skate park is also very popular with visitors and locals. Croydon is currently the fifth cheapest borough in London for property prices and an ideal location to invest, mainly due to the regeneration plans and the predicted increase in house prices This investment opportunity has driven up construction work in the area, which in turn has caused an increase in the production of construction waste; mainly refurbishment related waste such as flooring and carpets. The most popular property types in Croydon are 3 bedroom properties and flats, and over 65% of properties are now rented when compared to the 2001 census, which inevitably causes a range of residential waste types as bulky household waste is created during the moving process.
