Presenting your business waste for collection

The correct presentation of your business waste ahead of collection helps keep Islington tidy and can prevent businesses from being prosecuted or fined.

  • All business waste should be fully contained and tied in your commercial waste provider's sacks (not exceeding 6.5kg).
  • Waste must be contained within the bin with the lid closed, preventing waste from escaping.
  • All cardboard must securely bundled and presented with your commercial waste provider's recycling labels (not exceeding 6.5kg).
  • Please note any waste placed out on the highway incorrectly is unauthorised and may lead to prosecution.
  • It is strictly forbidden for any unauthorised person to place waste in the rear of the waste provider's vehicle. Only trained authorised personnel should load vehicles. These operations are monitored by CCTV.
