On 6th May, during the upcoming bank holiday weekend, the Coronation of King Charles III will be held in central Westminster.

The event starts at 11am with the King’s Procession travelling from Buckingham Palace along The Mall, through Admiralty Arch and Trafalgar Square, down Whitehall, Parliament Street, to the east and south side of Parliament Square and into Broad Sanctuary before arriving at Westminster Abbey. This will be the main affected area. 

Due to the activities and road closures, we will be unable to collect any waste from 6pm on Friday 5 May until 3:30pm 6 May. We kindly ask that during these times you do not present your waste. We will resume collections on Saturday evening when roads reopen.

Our collections across the rest of the city will continue as normal. There may be some delays for our collection crews in getting to your premises due to road closures and traffic, please do bear with us. If you need any support regarding your waste collections during the closures, please contact us via email: commercialwaste@westminster.gov.uk or call us on 020 7641 6180.
