The various councils within the London offer a range of waste management services to houses and other residential properties, 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 most of them will also offer large or bulky waste item collections. in London there are the following authorities: ELWA (East London Waste Authority) which has been set up between Redbridge, Havering, Barking & Dagenham and Newham NLWA (North London Waste Authority) which has been set up between Barnet, Enfield, Haringey, Waltham Forest, Camden, Hackney and Islington WLWA (West London Waste Authority) which has been set up between Hillingdon, Brent, Harrow, Ealing, Hounslow and Richmond-upon-Thames WRWA (Western Riverside Waste Authority) which has been set up between Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington & Chelsea, Wandsworth and Lambeth SLWP (South London Waste Partnership) which has been set up between Merton, Kingston upon Thames, Croydon and Sutton Along with Veolia ES UK, DSO, Amey, May Guerney and Serco who are the private waste contractors who are set up or hired to deal with waste more efficiently
The main issue with the councils in London is that the regulations and services offered can be different per area. This lack of a uniformed approach can leave people confused, as an example some council’s do not offer a garden waste collection. One of the biggest issues facing the councils is their poor performance when it comes to recycling London managed a recycling rate of 32.00%, which is very low for such a forward thinking and thriving city, when compared with others in Europe, for example Cardiff which managed to recycle 58%. Add to that the fact that London is running out of space sending 68% of waste to landfill is not sustainable
Another issue is London’s councils make it difficult to dispose of large or bulky waste items as they understandably have too many specific requirements for the collection, as an example 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 any specific collection time on a specific day, leaving the street looking untidy. There are times when you will need to look for an alternative to the council purely for service levels and environmental reasons.
