Learn more about Rubbish Removal in London
Millions of tonnes of commercial waste are produced annually, from general business waste to vast amounts of redundant furniture left over from office refits and the regular refurbishment of restaurants, retail outlets and entertainment venues. London disposes of an estimated 17 million tonnes of furniture from commercial properties every year, significantly increasing the need for reuse and recycling initiatives to keep these items and materials from being disposed of in landfills.
The residential market is the other major contributor to the amount of recyclable waste generated in the capital, with some 1.2 million sofas and nearly 900,000 mattresses disposed of yearly. Aside from items such as furniture, fridge/freezer units, and small amounts of DIY and builders waste, general household waste can be classed as either hazardous (e.g. household cleaning products and batteries) or non-hazardous items such as food waste, paper, and garden waste. The safe disposal of both hazardous and non-hazardous general household waste is the responsibility of the local borough council, and all 32 boroughs provide their own rubbish removal systems for dealing with recyclable and non- recyclable waste.
Every kind of household rubbish needs to be disposed of responsibly and in compliance with environmental agency guidelines, especially as the amount of waste generated increases with population growth within the city and Greater London as a whole.
