Frequently asked questions
Am I allowed to use First Mile to collect my waste in Tower Hamlets

Yes. As a business you are free to choose any licensed waste carrier to collect your waste and thousands of Tower Hamlets businesses already use First Mile for business waste, recycling, food waste, confidential shredding, and other recycling services.

What time do you collect waste and recycling in Tower Hamlets

We collect in the Tower Hamlets borough multiple times a day, 365 days a year. Times vary street by street according to council time bands.

What do it do if my street specific collection times set by Tower Hamlets council?

First Mile can collect during council time bands. We can also collect outside of time bandings if sacks or bins are on your premise, e.g. inside a loading bay.

What services are available in Tower Hamlets

All of First Mile's services are available in Tower Hamlets.

What makes First Mile different from other waste management services in Tower Hamlets?

At First Mile, we don’t just manage your waste professionally and securely - we're also committed to a zero-to-landfill approach. That means that we will recycle and reuse as much of your waste as possible.

Anything that can’t be recycled or reused will then be taken to a waste-to-energy facility, where it will be incinerated in a process that generates electricity and heat which is used to power homes. Any remains that can't be burnt are salvaged to become building materials, so it's all put to good use rather than going to landfill.
