Newham Waste Collection Services

Like most London boroughs, Newham is home to a wide range of businesses, all of which generate large amounts of commercial waste. At Bywaters, we’re equipped with specialist equipment and the right knowledge to ensure we manage this waste in the most sustainable way possible.

Waste Disposal

In Newham, Bywaters can handle the most common types of waste created by businesses. From dry mixed recycling and coffee cups, to confidential waste, glass and cardboard, we have the means to make sure zero waste is sent to landfill. With our dedicated team of engineers and Green Gurus, we ensure the safe, secure and sustainable management of your commercial waste.

Our facility in Lea Riverside, Bow, houses the largest indoor materials recovery facility (MRF) in London, enabling us to sort and dispose of Newham’s commercial waste. Running on solar power, our state-of-the-art technology sorts mixed waste into segregated waste streams, which is then bulked and sent for recycling.

Our other facility on Gateway Road manages construction and demolition waste, including bulky items such as bricks and metal. We can handle waste from all streams and divert them to either recycling or recovery. We also offer a tipping service for loads up to 500kg.

Waste Collection

We provide a reliable waste collection service to customers which can be arranged for a convenient time for you. Our sustainable fleet of either fully electric or ULEZ compliant Euro 6 vehicles transport your commercial waste to one of our facilities where it is then reused, recycled or sent to energy recovery.

Our waste management service in Newham is essential as we head towards a greener future and economy. We’ll send you a range of recycling bins and containers, depending on your business needs, and tailor our collection service to suit you. Once in our hands, we ensure zero waste is sent to landfill to help us improve recycling rates and protect the environment.

Newham: A Short Guide

Created in 1965 by the London Government Act 1963, Newham consists of the former Essex county boroughs, West Ham and East Ham — its name reflects its creation and combination of these. Situated on the borders of inner and outer East London, Newham includes Silvertown, North Woolwich, Canning Town, Beckton, Plaistow, Upton Park, Stratford, Manor Park, and part of Forest Gate. It is one of the six host boroughs for the 2012 Summer Olympics, and contains most of the Olympic Park, including the London Stadium.

Newham is one of the most diverse places in the country, with a population of 355,266 — half of which belong to ethnic minority groups. It’s unique in that over 200 dialects are spoken. Some of the main points of interest within the borough include the London City airport, Westfield shopping centre in Stratford, Siemens Crystal and the Excel Exhibition Centre.

Newham is the fastest growing business base out of all boroughs, with over 14,000 registered and an annual growth of 11.1%. This is populated mostly by companies within the administrative and support services sector, which is unusual for any London Borough./p>

Tourist Hotspots

As highlighted above, Newham is home to a large shopping complex that welcomes 3.3 million visitors per year. Siemens Crystal on the Royal Dock is a unique building, hosting many sustainable events, and the Excel Exhibition Centre hosts things like Comic Con, wedding shows, trade expos, hospitality events, and business conferences. These hotspots are ripe with activity, generating significant amounts of waste. At Bywaters, we also cater to the events industry, as well as collecting waste from commercial buildings, so all of these sectors are covered in our service.

We provide a dedicated glass recycling service in Newham, allowing us to recycle mixed glass whether it’s broken or intact. In order for us to collect it though, you’ll need to ensure that all glass waste is free from contamination.

We recycle many types of waste at Bywaters, including cardboard, coffee grounds, hazardous waste, dry mixed recycling, batteries and WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment). As long as you have the correct containers, which we can provide, we’ll collect it for you and ensure it’s recycled accordingly.

We can provide specific containers for your WEEE waste, or you can store such items in a container you already have and we’ll decant it upon collection. We also accept any type of electronic waste, including small devices.
