Who deals with waste collection in the UK?

General household and recyclable waste collection need to be arranged for every household in Britain. In order for this to happen, it needs to be undertaken by a waste management company that really knows what it is doing and how they are going to proceed with waste collection.

The responsibility of the waste clearance

In the UK, every local authority needs to provide waste collection for their residence. If households didn’t have waste collection there would be complete and utter anarchy as there would be mountains of rubbish piling up everywhere. Each local authority uses a different waste collection company or waste management company to collect the waste in their area.

Once the waste management company has collected the waste, it will be taken to a landfill site or a sorting plant. At the sorting plant all waste that has been collected is sorted to ensure that there is nothing being put into a landfill site that can be recycled. There is a lack of landfill sites in the UK and there are many government policies in place to encourage individuals to recycle as much of their waste as possible.
