Disposal of bulky waste items in Westminster

Bulky waste in Westminster –  dealing with large items of waste

If you have refitted your shop, business, or even a property as a landlord in central London, one of the biggest problems you may face is how to get rid of the old unwanted materials. Bulky waste items include office furniture, electrical items, desks, mattresses etc.

There are a number of options available from skip hire to a “man with a van” but  few allow you the peace of mind that your waste materials are being treated appropriately. Do please remember that if your waste is found to be dumped or disposed of in an inappropriate manner, you may still be liable or responsible.

If you are looking for a professional service that gives you 100% peace of mind then you should talk to the Westminster City Council Commercial Waste team. Our service provides for any waste volumes; from a single office chair to complete workspace refurbishments. We also offer a specialist bulky waste service to landlords and managing agents of residential properties.
