An excellent company with an excellent service, efficient and friendly. Always willing to help.
They braved the icy roads and snowy conditions to collect our Christmas trees on time and we're delighted by the 100% recycling rate.

My urgent request for Waste King to remove a very unusual, large and heavy item was met with professionalism and speed.

The service which Waste King provided was superb. The team were patient and helpful with me as I am 66 years old. These guys put on a good show and I would recommend them to anyone.
Staff were very polite, friendly and helpful. One of the few people we have used who delivered the service they advertised.

One of the things that might have helped prevent at least one of the two big fires in the St Albans area last weekend is segregating waste via steel waste hoarding containers or even a steel waste cage.
While both fires illustrate the dangers of storing large quantities of combustible materials, last Sunday’s fire at Glinwell’s Nurseries, in Hatfield Road, Smallford, involving a large number of wooden pallets, along with plastic containers, could have been contained – or even prevented – by the use of these containers and/or cages.
Waste King, the specialist collections, clearance and recycling company, has recently been experiencing increased demand from its customers for this simpler, safer and more cost-efficient way of storing commercially-generated waste. It also makes segregating the waste easier – thus enabling the maximum amount of waste to be recycled and keep any resulting landfill tax paid to a minimum.
Using steel hoarding is an excellent choice – from both an environmental and a cost-effective perspective. The containers are difficult to break or climb over and they offer excellent privacy since each ‘side’ of the hoarding comprises one solid sheet of metal. They meet safety standards since they act as a solid barrier separating the waste from the outside world – and they offer great flexibility, since they can be customised via a range of accessories to meet customers’ particular needs. The panels have also been proved able to withstand wind speeds of up to 50mph.
Importantly, both the containers and cages are made of high quality steel components and won’t burn. Moreover, they:
• Won’t rot or degrade
• Are portable and, thus, re-usable – which can save customers’ money
• Are ‘profiled’ and, so, deter graffiti artists and bill stickers
• Can accommodate changes in direction and elevation
• Can incorporate mechanical gate locks with unique entry codes
• Can be provided in customers’ corporate colours, to enhance their professional image – and customers’ signage can be added, using special adhesive tape
Once customers have put waste materials into their cage or container, a Waste King team of Environment Agency-licensed operatives can come along to sort, clear and then dispose of all the items. It’s cleaner as far as the environment is concerned, neater for the customer and, frankly, easier for Waste King to sort, segregate and dispose of the waste.
A key claim of Waste King’s is that it guarantees to recycle 85 per cent of all the waste – whatever it is - that it collects. In reality, the figure is now well over 90 per cent - mainly thanks to Waste King’s meticulous waste segregation policy.
Waste King’s business ethos is to send the minimum amount of whatever it collects to landfill. It aims to reduce long term pollution to a minimum and thus help protect the environment for current and future generations.
