Business waste: guidance for architects

The guide (downloadable from the bottom of the page) provides information for architects - and others that provide recycling and/or rubbish storage facilities for premises - within Islington to help them to incorporate sustainable waste management systems into their designs.

It covers the following:

  • Waste management issues to consider when submitting a planning application

  • Collection frequency and the provision of sufficient storage space

  • Storage capacity and requirements

  • Vehicle access requirements (e.g. refuse vehicles).

  • This guide is a reference and should not be considered as an alternative to consultation.  If you are designing or adapting a new building you must discuss the plans with a Street Environment Services Area Manager  to ensure you have acceptable provision for waste storage.

    The borough is divided into three areas, north, central and south (the guide shows the area responsibilities on a map).  The contact for each area is below:


  • North Area Manager     Bill Reay              T 0207 527 3457

  • Central Area Manager  Tony Montgomery T 020 7527 7609

  • South Area Manager     David Rawlings     T 020 7527 4605.
