Covid-related service disruption

Waste collections may be delayed as regular staff are absent due to illness and/or self-isolation.

Agency staff are in place to provide the usual service. However there may still be delays to your normal collection day and time.

Due to a technical fault with some of our vehicles, we are unable to empty underground refuse storage systems on some estates.

We are allocating crews to pick up the build-up of waste at these locations so they remain as clear as possible.

We are working hard to get the vehicles back on the road as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patience and sorry for any inconvenience.

Find out the collection schedule over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend.

Hazardous waste

What is hazardous waste?

This is waste that is harmful to humans or the environment. It should not be disposed of through usual household or business waste collections.

It includes:

  • asbestos
  • petrol
  • pesticides
  • paint
  • chemicals, such as brake fluid or print toner
  • solvents
  • oils (except edible ones), such as car oil

You can find more information about hazardous waste on the government’s website.

How do you arrange hazardous waste collections?

The City of London Corporation provides this service for us.

Please note, they do not collect asbestos from businesses.
