The UN’s COP26 climate conference in Glasgow this month brought together many influential representatives that can make the changes required to save this planet from a climate catastrophe.

However, the goals outlined by COP26 are extremely ambitious but nevertheless necessary to achieve to bring about the changes we need to avoid extreme weather and climate changes in the future.

Because we are all in this together, many smaller businesses have been trying their best to implement more sustainable business practices. Such measures are unquestionably required to address the environmental emergency and crisis of peak pollution and high carbon dioxide levels.

With the corporate sector beginning to recognise the significance of sustainable development, let’s see how some London businesses are dealing with the environmental challenges. More specifically, the small businesses that are at the forefront of pollution daily, namely waste removal companies in London.

How do they tackle the climate crisis and can they perhaps help the London community to meet some of the COP26 targets such as:

  • speed up the switch to electric vehicles.
  • encourage investment in renewables.
  • protect and restore ecosystems.
  • accelerate action to tackle the climate crisis through collaboration between governments, businesses, and civil society.

Through the following examples of what junk removal service businesses in London are currently working on we should get a good idea about the progress that can be made to inch closer to our environmental goals.

1. London rubbish removal

London Rubbish Removal are an established London business that is certified by the environmental agency. They ensure that the rubbish they collect is disposed of according to legal requirements. And they work with local London charities that collect used items that are in good condition to cut down on the waste. They sort all items that can be recycled and take all the waste to the right recycling facility. Waste items such as e-waste for example contain various metals and reusable parts. They ensure these end up with the facilities that can adequately sort and reuse them to reduce waste.

So, how do they contribute to the climate conference goals?

  • speed up the switch to electric vehicles: London Rubbish Removal Services invest parts of their revenue in hybrid vehicles that they use for their man and van rubbish collections.
  • encourage investment in renewables: One renewable energy source not many talk about is biogas. It is produced from processed residual waste such as food waste for example. It can be used as a fuel for biomass boilers, heating and electricity systems and its production creates no greenhouse gas emissions. It reduces waste ending up in landfills, hence why rubbish removal companies make a contribution to the production of biogas as they deliver food and industrial waste to plants that produce biogas.
  • protect and restore ecosystems: by collecting building waste such as plaster, concrete or bricks for example, London Rubbish Removal Services promote the restoration of London’s ecosystems as they ensure that no London building site leaves damaging building waste behind that would interfere with ecosystems thriving in that area.
  • accelerate action to tackle the climate crisis through collaboration between governments, businesses, and civil society: London Rubbish Removal Services work closely with the governmental environment agency to meet all the standards for waste collection. They educate and advise their partners such as Waitrose, Walt Disney or Emirates, about adequate waste management and disposal or recycling. Via their business website’s blog, they inform the public and their customers about recycling, waste reduction and sustainability tips.

2. Quick wasters

This company is fully licensed and insured per the Work Regulation Standards in London.

So, how do they contribute to the climate conference goals?

  • speed up the switch to electric vehicles: Quick Wasters are in the process of making their rubbish collection van fleet more eco-friendly by purchasing more hybrid and electric vehicles step by step over the coming years.
  • encourage investment in renewables: to run their own operations they source their main energy supply from green energy providers that use mostly renewable energy sources such as solar and wind. With their waste collection services they contribute towards biogas production made from processed food waste as they work with clients like food delivery services such as Just Eat and restaurant chains like Jamie Oliver. So equally, this rubbish removal company supports the production of renewable energy.
  • protect and restore ecosystems: by collecting and disposing of commercial waste like used paper, cardboard, used electronic devices and other office furniture that requires specialised disposal, Quick Wasters contribute to keeping industrial and business areas clean and environmentally friendly as they remove potentially toxic waste from these locations to protect natural habitats.

3. Express waste removals

Express Waste Removals provide eco-friendly house, office and builders’ waste collection services to London residents and businesses. With their highly specialised waste disposal services including recycling heavy, bulky, small, and large items such as pieces of furniture that also contain electronics or metals, IT appliances, and other waste items that are difficult to dispose of, they support every London household and business with their waste disposal services.

So, how do they contribute to the climate conference goals?

  • speed up the switch to electric vehicles: Express Waste Removals are working hard to raise funding to use more hybrid and electric vehicles for their man and van collections. They aim to renew their whole fleet within the coming years also with regards to the increases in the congestion zone charges in London.
  • encourage investment in renewables: The environmentally conscious Express Waste Removals team use sustainability apps such as Grid Carbon to reduce their carbon footprint by scheduling their energy use better as they also use a green energy provider.

And they support the production of biogas.
  • protect and restore ecosystems: Express Waste Removals Services are an ISO 14001 and 9001 accredited rubbish Removal Company strictly adhering to the City of London’s policies governing safe disposal and pollution prevention. They ensure that over 90% of all the waste and junk they collect will end up in recycling plants or is reused. By that they reduce the waste ending up in landfills which will eventually lead to a lower number of landfills, restoring natural habitats again.
  • accelerate action to tackle the climate crisis through collaboration between governments, businesses, and civil society: Express Waste Removals Services follow a green policy which we they are stating with pride. They work with the London local authorities to dispose of the waste as effectively as they can to help reduce pollution levels in London.

They are committed to educating people better about recycling, waste pollution reduction and sustainability via their business website’s blog.

We all know that pollution levels are big contributors to the climate emergency we are facing right now. London is no exception and cannot reduce its pollution levels unless all London citizens and businesses work together to reuse, reduce, and recycle more. It is reassuring to see that London businesses such as the listed London rubbish removal companies that work at the heart of the waste pollution challenges we face, are doing what they can to fight the climate crisis. Their commitment will have a knock-on effect within London as Londoner’s using more sustainable services will also make their contribution. It’s a win-win situation for London and the UK.
