Our Camden Waste Management Services

Providing the London Borough of Camden with the appropriate waste management options can be a challenge due to the bustling nature of the area. However, at Bywaters, our team has a wealth of knowledge and the right tools to correctly manage, sort and recycle waste produced by businesses of any size, in any sector. Our key goal is to ensure our waste processes are sustainable, and yours are too, to help build a greener future.

Camden Waste Disposal

Bywaters can dispose of many types of waste, including dry mixed recycling, cardboard, glass, confidential waste, and even used coffee grounds. With our experienced team and specialist equipment, we can safely, securely and sustainably manage Camden business waste.

Home to London’s largest indoor materials recovery facility (MRF), we transport waste to our Lea Riverside headquarters in Bow. Running on solar power, its state-of-the-art technology sorts mixed waste into segregated streams, before being bulked and sent off for recycling.

Our other facility located at Gateway Road manages construction and demolition waste, including bulky items like bricks and metal. So, if you’re renovating your office or moving premises, we can help you dispose of the rubbish, with all materials either sent for recycling or energy recovery. We also offer a tipping service for loads of 500kg and above. 

Camden Waste Collection

Arranged at a convenient time for your business, our sustainable fleet of either fully electric or ULEZ compliant Euro 6 vehicles will collect and transport your commercial waste to one of our facilities. Here it is then reused, recycled or recovered, depending on what type of waste it is.

Our Camden waste collection is more important than ever, as we head towards a circular economy to boost the planet’s sustainability. We’ll send your business a range of recycling bins and containers, depending on your specific needs, and tailor our collection service to a time that suits you. Once in our hands, we ensure zero waste is sent to landfill, helping your business reduce its carbon footprint and protect the environment.

Camden: A Short Guide

Situated to the north of Westminster and the historic City of London, the borough of Camden encompasses part of Highgate, Hampstead West, Hampstead, Kentish Town, Camden Town, part of Kilburn, Somers Town, St Pancras, Bloomsbury and Holborn. Home to bustling street markets, world famous music venues and a handful of tourist hotspots, Camden is a thriving and ever-expanding borough.

The history of Camden 

Combining the metropolitan areas of Hampstead, Holborn and St Pancras, Camden was named after Camden Town which originally gained its name from Charles Pratt, 1st Earl of Camden in 1795. The earliest settlement was known to be on the high lands of Hampstead Heath, dating all the way back to 7000 BC. For many centuries, the area was heavily populated with forests and open spaces — nothing like the concrete jungle it is now.

Landmarks and culture

Some of London’s most visited attractions are in the vicinity of Camden, including The British Museum, The British Library, London Zoo, the BT Tower, and the Roundhouse, where the likes of David Bowie, Fleetwood Mac and Amy Winehouse have performed. 

Camden market is a popular spot for visitors all year round, boasting a variety of different food stalls and independent businesses, as well as high street stores. The borough is artistic, bohemian, and loved by many. There’s also plenty of green spaces, such as Primrose Hill, Hampstead Heath and part of Regent’s Park, all of which create significant amounts of waste for Bywaters to collect, sort and recycle.

The borough has many notable places of interest, including over 5,000 listed buildings and 36 designated conservation areas. It’s been a residential borough since the 1790s, but the development of the Grand Union Canal and improved railway lines has turned it into a bustling, richly cultured location for residents and tourists.

A cultural hub

This area has a long history of multi-ethnicity, welcoming people from all over the world, including Greek, Italian, and Irish nationalities. The London borough is currently home to over 279,500 people, with ethnic groups making up one fifth of the population.

Camden’s cultural and commercial land use in the south vividly contrasts the busy, mixed-use districts of Camden Town and Kentish Town located in the centre, as well as the leafy residential areas around Hampstead Heath which covers 681 acres of land. It’s a hugely diverse borough, reaching from Covent Garden to Euston, and Kings Cross to Hampstead. 

As of 2020, there were 36,805 businesses registered in Camden, with a 2% increase from 2019. This is the second-highest number of companies in London after Westminster. Alongside many restaurants and places of interest, the borough’s largest industrial sectors are professional, scientific and technical enterprises, with many businesses in highly skilled, high-value parts of the economy, such as law, management consultancy and advertising. Frequently visited by both tourists and residents, large volumes of waste are generated yearly as a result.

Consequently, as the borough expands, Bywaters will face more waste management responsibilities and challenges in order to sustainably manage and dispose of commercial waste in Camden. We cater to businesses of all sizes, so it doesn’t matter if you’re a small capacity music venue or a massive office complex, we can offer the right waste solution for your needs.
