Frequently asked questions
Am I allowed to use First Mile to collect my waste in Westminster?
Yes. As a business you are free to choose any licensed waste carrier to collect your waste and thousands of Westminster 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 Westminster?
Westminster is in the heart of First Mile’s operation and we collect in the borough multiple times a day, 365 days a year. Times vary street by street according to council time bands.
What do I do if my street has specific collection times set by Westminster Council?
First Mile can collect during council time bands. We can also collect outside of time bandings if sacks or bins are on your premises, e.g. inside a loading bay.
What services are available in Westminster?
All of First Mile’s services are available in Westminster.
What makes First Mile different from other waste management services in Westminster?

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.
