Waste and recycling services in Regent Street, W1B

Regent Street has a long association with retail and fashion, and even today hosts the flagship locations for many major brands. Over 20,000 people work on Regent Street, and millions of tourists visit the premium shopping destination every year. The street runs from Waterloo Place in St James’s through Piccadilly Circus and Oxford Circus, ending at Langham Place.

The millions of shoppers visiting Regent Street result in a huge amount of waste being produced by businesses, workers and shoppers alike. It’s vital that your shop has high-quality, frequent and reliable waste and recycling collections. This way your store will be safer, more attractive to customers and more productive. To achieve all of this, retail stores require a commercial waste partner that can provide a range of services that meet your needs. This requirement is where Westminster City Council Commercial Waste Services can help you.

Working with the Heart of London Business Alliance and New West End Company to provide you with outstanding waste management services

Regent Street is rare in that it falls under two business improvement districts, the Heart of London Business Alliance and the New West End Company. As well as being the partner to many other BID’s, Westminster City Council Commercial Waste Services is the preferred waste operator for both Heart of London and New West End Company. This decision had been decided after numerous waste operators were assessed, both regarding the quality and transparency of services they provide, but also the cost they can offer these at. Commercial Waste Services had the highest quality services available, for a reasonable cost and therefore were selected as a partner in both cases. This agreement means that businesses on Regent Street can receive better prices on waste management services by being in a partnership with your local BID.
