ReLondon has been at the forefront in helping local authorities adapt their commercial waste services to meet the challenges presented by COVID-19.
Three reports are available to download; one published in summer 2020 focusing on the initial impact of the pandemic on commercial waste services; a second, published in autumn 2020, which helps local authorities understand the longer term impact of COVID-19 on commercial waste tonnages and composition; and a third, which revisits the autumn 2020 report providing predictions for commercial waste in 2021/22.

COVID-19 has had a profound effect on every aspect of our lives, including our relationship with waste. In response, London waste authorities have had to be responsive and adaptive to maintain their domestic and commercial waste and recycling waste collection services.
ReLondon has commissioned research and developed toolkits to help London’s waste authorities respond to the pandemic.
