Learn more about Household Waste in England
England With a population of 56,000,000 England is one of the most populated countries in Europe, so a lot of effort from all the cities, authorities, waste contractors and residents must be made to ensure it becomes more sustainable it England spans across 130,395 square kilometres, contains over 20 major cities and an amazing 1,639,560 hectares of greenbelt land. The various councils within England offer a range of waste management services to its residents, most of them specialise in general waste collections and mixed recyclable waste collections, some councils offer other waste collections, such as garden waste recycling, and bulky waste item collections.
There are 345 local authorities and over 5,000 waste operators that come together to manage the role of waste management in England. However, there are only eight local authorities that achieve a recycling rate higher than 60%, they are: - East Riding of Yorkshire Council 64.8% - South Oxfordshire District Council 63.3% - Three Rivers District Council 63.0% - Vale of White Horse District Council 62.5% - St Albans City and District Council 62.1% - Surrey Heath Borough Council 61.9% - Rochford District Council 60.9% - Stroud District Council 60.2
The main issue with the councils in England is that the regulations and services offered can be different for every borough and it is this lack of a uniformed approach that can leave people confused and getting it wrong. As an example, some council’s do not offer a garden waste collection, whilst other do.
Another issues facing the councils is their poor performance when it comes to recycling England managed a recycling rate of 44.70%, is low when compared with other countries in Europe, especially for such a forward thinking and thriving country. Add to that the fact that England is running out of space for landfill and we send 55% of waste there, this is certainly not sustainable
Another issue is England’s councils make it difficult to dispose of bulky waste items as they understandably have too many specific requirements for the collection. An example of these requirements is that they do not come into your property, so you need to do all the hard work by bringing all the waste items to the roadside for them to collect, they also do not give a specific collection time for a specific day.
There are times when you will need to look for an alternative to the council purely for service levels and environmental reason and one of the best alternatives in England would be to trust us to handle your large or bulky household waste. We will do all the heavy lifting and hard work for you, and make sure that all items in your household waste is disposed of properly.
