Croydon is one of eleven metropolitan centres of Greater London. Located less than ten miles from Charing Cross station, the South London town is one of the Southeast’s largest commercial districts. A vibrant commuter community with close ties to the capital, as well as its own unique identity.
The town is a bustling business centre which also boasts an exciting, lucrative night life. For decades it’s been in an almost constant state of growth, and that process shows no sign of slowing following the introduction of the Croydon Vision 2020 urban planning initiative. Businesses are flocking to Croydon, its vibrant shopping facilities are constantly expanding, and more and more people are moving to the town and its surrounding borough.
Undoubtedly, Croydon’s growth presents massive opportunities and benefits for the community. But like much of London, this expansion also presents new challenges when it comes to waste disposal. Commercial and trade waste has been a perennial problem. In 2016 the borough council was forced to implement a widespread ban of daytime business waste collections in an attempt to prevent illegal fly tipping. The local authorities take a strong approach to any kind of illegal waste disposal. So far, the council’s Don’t Mess With Croydon – Take Pride campaign has prosecuted 143 people for offences ranging from fly-tipping to littering. The eleven most recent culprits, prosecuted earlier this year, were forced to pay a total of £9,414 in fines and court fees. Meanwhile, since 2013 the local council has applied a compulsory recycling policy to households in the borough, with residents not following the strict regulations at risk of an £80 on the spot penalty.
In a community as dynamic and heavily populated as Croydon, finding a reliable, effective business waste disposal solution can be a challenge.
