Waste service strike

A number of Tower Hamlets Council frontline waste service workers and street cleansers will be going on strike from 18 September to 1 October due to a national pay dispute.  

Despite the council working to maintain services for residents, the strike will impact collections and cleansing across the borough. We apologise in advance for the disruption this will cause.

Carbon Footprint tool

This Carbon Footprint tool will help all organisations calculate their carbon emissions. The tool will calculate the carbon emissions from an organisation’s:

  • buildings,
  • transport,
  • refrigerant use,
  • water use and
  • waste produced.

The tool will then generate a greenhouse gas report that can be used to report the organisation’s emissions and to monitor emissions over future years to track progress in reducing them.

The tool also provides some tips and advice on ways an organisation can reduce its emissions.


Instructions on how to complete the tool are set out in the tool. If you have any questions, please contact us
