Disposing of waste from Charities and Not-for-profit organisations
The law says you must dispose of your waste and recycle properly but disposing of waste is expensive. The current charge (2016/17) will remain at £195 per tonne. Click the link for additional information on business waste disposal charges.
If you are a charity or not-for-profit organisation based in West London, you can request we waive our charges.

Over the last year, West London Waste has developed a new programme of work to help reduce the amount thrown away in West London. We want to help residents reduce, reuse and recycle everything they can. There are a number of ways we can work with your organisation, including helping you organise clothes swapping parties, supporting local furniture re-use schemes and putting on bring events. We also give talks, run workshops and have games to help people save up to £60 a month by getting the most from the food they buy. As well as helping you to reduce and re-use, some of these activities are also a great way for your organisation to raise money, to tell local people what you do and help give something more to your community.
We will contact you to discuss how we can work with your organisation.
How long will it take to find out if we can have a permit?
We will try to get a response to you within 5 working days of receiving your application. Make sure you complete your contact details on the form so we can contact you.
What do we have to do when we arrive at the site?
When you arrive at the site, show our staff your permit and say you want to bring in some rubbish. Our staff will take your permit from you and you will be asked to move your vehicle onto the weighbridge for weighing. Then take your items to the public area of the site and put your rubbish in the containers provided. Before you leave return to the weighbridge and weigh your vehicle again. Our staff will complete the details on the back of the permit and will return your permit to you.
We’ve lost our permit, how do we get a replacement?
Email email@example.com. They will organise a replacement and cancel the other permit. Your weight limit will be changed to reflect the amount of rubbish that your organisation has already brought into the site.
