Waste management Islington

Islington is a vibrant community district in Greater London, England. It is a global centre of financial services, and, despite the recession, the economic climate in Islington remains relatively stable. In 2014, there were 230,000 jobs in Islington, a ratio of 1.39 for every person of working age (16-64) in the borough. The King’s Head Theatre and Pub is the second oldest operating pub theatre in the UK, and Arsenal FC has been situated in Islington for over 100 years.

In June 2019, Islington Council declared an environment and climate emergency. As a result, they pledged to work towards making Islington net zero carbon by 2030. With a household recycling target of 33%, Islington has stated that by using existing recycling services, a recycling rate of 36% is achievable. That’s why Divert can help coordinate a sustainable waste management plan to help reduce the amount of waste that gets sent to landfill.

Waste Collection Islington We provide free bins

With Islington securing itself as a business hub, it’s imperative for businesses to uphold their legal responsibility and dispose of their waste safely and securely. As it stands, it is estimated that 70% of a business’s landfill waste can be recycled. As a business, you have the opportunity to make a real difference by keeping waste to a minimum and recycling as much as you can. Furthermore, recycling waste costs the local council less money and reduces the amount of space being taken up in landfill. That’s why at Divert we can ensure that your duty of care is fulfilled, and by storing, removing and disposing of your waste ourselves, we prevent your waste from causing any damage to people or the environment.

Glass waste Islington

London produces more than 18 million metric tonnes of waste, and as the population increases, so will the amount of rubbish. Glass recycling is one of the best options when it comes to environmental sustainability. Recycling glass is both environmentally and financially beneficial as jars and bottles made from crushed glass require significantly less energy than that produced from virgin materials. Recycling glass also reduces the space in landfills that would otherwise be taken up by used unnecessary recyclable glass waste. As of present, 60% of the glass packaging we receive in the UK is recycled, and by enabling Divert to transport and recycle the glass recycling glass instead of littering or tossing it away is greatly beneficial to both your business and the environment.

As waste produced as a result of business activity is classed as controlled waste, businesses are legally responsible for making sure that it is disposed of appropriately. At Divert, we understand the importance of trying to preserve as much DMR dry mixed recyclable material as possible. We can arrange for suitable recycling bins to collect your waste and take it to the most appropriate disposal facility, reducing your business’s daily carbon footprint.

For example, not only can we help you dispose of it correctly, but we can also advise you on strategies you can use to reduce the amount of waste you produce. We can also collect waste outside of your operating hours for minimal interruptions.
