Businesses are moving here because the quality of our public realm impressed their clients and employees. We clean all our streets every morning ready for the business day, and recycle the equivalent of an elephant in paper and cardboard daily with our free recycling which puts money back into businesses pockets - for example, we save CoffeeWorks Project at least £1,000 a year.
We run SIX FREE recycling services SIX days a week - paper, cardboard, plastics, printer cartridges, furniture swap shop and London’s first service recycling waste coffee grounds into reusable energy pellets.
We are helping businesses cut their environmental impact and save money. Many BID businesses are saving way more than they pay in BID levy by using our free recycling services.
What’s taking up space in your office that might be useful to other businesses or charities?
If it’s re-useable office furniture, IT in good working order or spotless catering equipment and crockery, tell us and we will advertise it. If someone can use it, we’ll take it away and deliver to them for FREE, saving you money on collection and disposal.
Bean to Green COFFEE GROUNDS
We take green very seriously. We are proud of being the first BID in London to recycle coffee beans into bio-fuel. All businesses, hospitality and offices producing who more than 2kg of used coffee grounds a day can join our scheme which turns used coffee grounds into pellets for bio-mass boilers. Simply put the grounds out with your usual recycling.
Clean, tidy, well-maintained streets are critical to making the Angel feel attractive and welcoming, creating a sense of pride for those of us who work here.
Our services are on top of what Islington Council delivers.

angel.london SUSTAINABILITY POLICY
angel.london works with Islington Council to ensure we conform to the borough sustainability requirements but we also promote and operate green policies to and for our members. We deliver an effective, eco-friendly recycling service where all of the waste we collect is directed away from landfill, and by undertaking the service in-house, we substantially reduce the carbon footprint for the BID area. Wherever possible we recycle unwanted office furniture and equipment between our members and are the ONLY BID in London to offer a coffee recycling service in partnership with bio-bean which turns coffee grounds into bio-fuels. As part of the recently completed and ERDF-funded Smart Green Business project we provided free environmental performance advice and audits to many of our members, enabling them to use fewer resources and make financial gains through lower energy bills and reduced consumption. As statutory consultees on any local planning issues we work to make the area sustainable through commenting on development and traffic and road issues affecting the town centre. angel.london is committed to continue to work to reduce carbon output, increase recycling and reduce water consumption within the BID are for the duration of our term.
