Newham’s commercial waste and recycling service offers a range of collection services to businesses within the borough. If you are operating a business, you can request to have us provide your commercial waste and recycling services, or you can use another provider, as long as they are licensed by the Environment Agency.

We can collect most general waste your business produces and dispose of it safely and locally - diverting it away from landfill.
