Living in a clean and healthy environment is essential for our well-being. Proper waste disposal is an important part of maintaining a clean and healthy environment, and the London Borough of Camden takes this responsibility seriously. With a population of over 250,000 people, Camden generates a significant amount of waste each day. However, with the right measures in place, we can all work together to ensure that rubbish is disposed of in a responsible and sustainable way. In this article, we will provide a comprehensive guide on how to get rid of rubbish in Camden.
Before disposing of your rubbish, make sure to check your collection day on the Camden Council website. This will ensure that your rubbish is collected on the correct day.
