Learn more about Waste Disposal in East Central London
We can avoid commercial and domestic waste being disposed of in ways that are not environmentally sustainable by implementing the steps in the Government guidance on applying the Waste Hierarchy. This begins with preventing the production of waste, for example by re-using products and using less material in design. This is then followed by preparing for re-use and recycling, and when this can not be achieved, other forms of recovery might be applicable, such as incineration or pyrolysis. When none of these measures can be implemented, landfill can be used. At Wayst, we ensure the quality and professionalism of a range of waste clearance services for our clients while reducing the industry’s impact on the environment and helping to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill. We recycle 92% of the waste that we are responsible for and are changing the industry into one that is cleaner and more sustainable.
East Central London is one of the most commercially built up areas of the city, with just under 30,000 active businesses and a relatively small population of 77,292. Despite this, waste disposal services are limited in the area, with only one waste transfer site offering domestic and commercial waste disposal solutions. The City of London’s nearest council-run waste disposal service is in the neighbouring borough of Westminster – Westminster City Council offers a broad range of solutions including general waste, recycling, and specialist waste collection. Many clients make use of the convenience and flexibility offered by private waste carriers, and due to the amount of commercial buildings in this area, there are more private contractors coming in from areas outside the immediate vicinity to provide waste disposal solutions.
