General waste collections in Westminster
If your business is looking to have general waste collected, which is the waste that cannot or should not be recycled, then Commercial Waste Services can help. We can collect whatever general waste your business produces and dispose of it safely, without the use of landfill or exporting it abroad. Waste deposited in landfill sites never fully degrades but does start to produce methane, which is an extremely powerful greenhouse gas. Landfills also produce leachate, which is contaminated water that leaks from the waste, that can contaminate groundwater. Some waste collectors simply send their waste abroad and last year 1.7 million tonnes of London’s business waste was exported rather than put to good use closer to home. Westminster City Council Commercial Waste Services does not take waste from businesses to landfill or send it abroad. We can help you dispose of all of your waste in the most environmentally friendly way possible, locally. You can read more information below about how we collect and process general waste.
