There is a great deal of waste that councils including the city of London do not take fron home owners, private businesses and shops.  For instance most councils will not take away waste that does not fit into their wheelie bins and larger items of furniture like beds, mattresses, settees and building waste and no garden waste that makes a wheelie bin overflow.  Traditionally, builders have used skips in London as a way of removing the debris left after construction, but with current parking enforcement in force, it is now necessary to get a permit from the local borough council to have a skip placed outside many buildings which can prove expensive.

Corporations like the city of London's do offer waste collection fee charged services, but these are often a more expensive option compared to the solution that Bassett Waste Ltd can offer.
