City waste management is a problem all over the world and the United Kingdom makes no exception to that negative tendency. The country’s recycling rates are low, littering and fly tipping continue to be a problem and the rapidly increasing population of the UK capital means that the annual waste production in the city is constantly increasing. Some of the more recent statistics, studies and researches on the topic also show that:
Out of the 10 Commandments, two are dedicated to a person’s neighbours. And indeed, being on friendly terms with the people who live next door to you can make life a little easier. After all, if your home is your fortress, you would not want it to be surrounded by enemy fortresses, right! But did you know that one of the most common reasons why neighbours argue is… the rubbish bin. So, we decided to present you with the Four Bin Commandments that will help keep your neighbours happy:

We all know that spring cleaning is an old tradition that is observed all over the world. But what about spring office clearance? This is a relatively new trend among forward-thinking companies and it makes a lot of sense. Tossing away the junk that has accumulated in the office during the last 365 days will:
Whenever you want to get rid of a large amount of waste or unwanted items such as broken furniture, old carpeting or faulty household appliances, the best way to take care of that task is by hiring a skip bin. They come in a wide range of sizes and they will give you the flexibility to collect all the rubbish at the pace and time that best suit you. In addition to that, even a high-quality skip hire alternative in London makes a much more affordable solution that a full-scale rubbish removal service. The only downside is that you will be the one who will need to fill the skip. The good news is that this is far from a complicated job.

Recycling in modern-day UK is easier than ever before. That is particularly the case in London where local councils work in close partnership with licensed recycling facilities around the city and have also launched their own recycling schemes. Despite that, however, about 40% of all people living in the country believe that recycling takes too much of their time. Another 28% are suspicious of their local council and think that even if they use the designated recycling bins, their waste will not be recycled.
