Ensuring Lambeth’s streets stay clean and tidy

Lambeth Council wants to make sure that local businesses have the best possible waste and recycling services available. Services which are reliable, fairly priced and keep our streets clean, tidy and welcoming to all residents and visitors. To deliver these services we work closely with our waste collection specialist, Veolia, to provide a range of flexible services that can be designed to meet businesses’ needs.

Introducing Lambeth Commercial Services

Lambeth Commercial Services offers a commercial waste collections service. It’s a business’s responsibility to dispose of commercial waste properly. Business rates do not cover the cost of waste collection from business premises.

Businesses have a duty to ensure they have appropriate arrangements for the proper collection and disposal of their waste. We make sure all businesses are complying with their responsibilities through a dedicated team of Environmental Enforcement Officers.
