Ways to get rid of rubbish in London

One of the fastest and most convenient ways to get rid of rubbish in London is to hire a man and van rubbish removal team. Rubbish.com has hundreds of licensed waste carriers operating in London that can provide same-day rubbish clearance, including eco-friendly waste disposal as well as recycling or donating unwanted rubbish to local charities.

London waste disposal facilities

As the capital of England and the United Kingdom, London has dozens of waste disposal and processing facilities spread across its many councils and waste authorities.
Council Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs), civic amenity sites, or ‘council tips’ and waste processing and transfer facilities in London are under the remit of waste authorities as follows:

For routine waste and rubbish collection services in London, consult your waste authority and local council website for specific information.

Council tips in London may differ significantly in their operating hours, types of vehicles they will accept and maximum clearance heights, charges for using the tip, type of waste being disposed of, ID and/or permit requirements, and more.

You are responsible for loading and safely transporting all waste and rubbish as well as unloading and dumping it yourself. For simple and straightforward bulky waste removal without any of the hassle, call a local man and van rubbish removal company in London instead.

Frequently asked questions about rubbish clearance in London

How much household waste is produced in London?

It is estimated that nearly 7m tonnes of household waste is produced in London every year. This works out to approximately 970kg of waste produced per household in London, of which approximately 30 per cent is estimated to be food waste and packaging such as plastic bottles and coffee cups.

London has ambitiously aimed for zero landfill waste of biodegradable or recyclable waste by 2026 and has also aimed to recycle 65 per cent of all municipal waste by 2030.

How do I get rid of bulky items in London?

Many councils in London offer bulky waste collection services for rubbish like furniture and white goods. Bulky items can also often be donated to charities, sold online or through community groups, or given away for free to friends or family.

A common method of disposing of bulky waste in many London boroughs is to leave it on the street for the scrap man, although it should be noted that councils can consider this to be fly-tipping and issue a penalty. Instead, choose a local man and van rubbish removal company in London.

How do I get rid of white goods in London?

Many councils in London offer bulky waste collection services for white goods such as refrigerators and washing machines, but most stipulate that the appliance cannot be too bulky or heavy, e.g. American-style refrigerators. Moreover, bulky waste collection from local councils for white goods isn’t free and can take weeks.

Instead, consider leaving the heavy lifting for your unwanted white goods to a man and van rubbish clearance company in London. Many scrap men can also salvage scrap metals such as copper wiring and aluminium for recycling, which benefits the environment and can bring down the cost of appliance removal.

How do I get rid of my old sofa in London?

Old sofas are amongst the most common items of furniture disposed of in London and elsewhere in the UK. If the sofa has its fire label attached it can be resold or donated to charities.

If the sofa lacks its fire label, it must be disposed of either through your local council’s bulky waste collection, taking it to the council tip yourself, or hiring a rubbish removal company for sofa removal in London.

Are there bins in London?

Most councils in London provide residents with wheelie bins and/or containers for routine rubbish collection, whereas some denser areas such as the City of Westminster provide on-street waste and recycling bins as well as free recycling bags.

The size and colour of the wheelie bin and/or container(s) may differ from council to council and the items they accept or don’t accept may differ as well. For example, the London Borough of Hounslow uses black wheelie bins for fortnightly household waste collection and red, blue, and green containers for weekly recycling collection.

What was the biggest ‘fatberg’ found in London?

The largest fatberg discovered in London sewers to date was the Whitechapel fatberg in 2017. This enormous, disgusting clog of rubbish and waste was estimated to measure twice the length of Wembley Stadium and has been featured in exhibits at the Museum of London as well as gathering international press coverage.

Fatbergs are unfortunately common in London and most of the rubbish that ends up in the sewers should have been disposed of properly through routine council rubbish collection or hiring a rubbish removal company in London instead.
