Hazardous waste

Hazardous waste like asbestos contains substances or has properties that might make it harmful to human health or the environment. For this reason, it has to be treated safely & separately from the standard waste & recycling.

Food

Over 30% of the waste sent for disposal in black bags from west London is food, the largest single material in rubbish bins. Also, more than half of what is thrown away could have been eaten and was avoidable. Wasted food means wasted money and wasted resources that went into production and distribution as well as increasing the cost of disposal.

Furniture

Ten million items of furniture are thrown away every year. Many of these could be used again by someone else.

Garden

All six West London councils offer a garden waste collection service. A special bin or bag is supplied for your garden waste and is collected it as part of their household collection scheme. If you don't have this type of collection service or your bin is full, you can recycle garden waste at your nearest Household Waste Recycling Centre.

Textiles

Textiles are one of the most polluting industries in the world and have a huge carbon impact with each garment produced.

Cotton is estimated as the largest user of water of all agricultural commodities, representing more than half of the irrigated agricultural land globally. An average cotton t-shirt can require 2,700 litres of water and an average pair of jeans can use over 10,000 litres of water.
