Waste management service

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea has built a reputation for award winning quality and value-for-money services. Councillors and officers are responsible for ensuring that residents of the Royal Borough have the best services local government can offer, at a price the community can afford. For this reason, the majority of services carried out by the Waste Management Division, such as refuse collection, street cleansing and public convenience maintenance, are undertaken by private contractors.

Services that are contracted out are controlled by a team of officers who make sure the work is carefully monitored and standards maintained. Our own in-house team carry out enforcement duties and administer street trading throughout the borough. The Division has been recognised nationally by the award of three consecutive Charter Marks.

Please help us to keep the streets of the Royal Borough clean and tidy and support all of our recycling initiatives to ensure that we do our collective best to protect the environment for the future.
