Improving air quality

Reducing traffic and improving air quality are major priorities for the West End to make it a safer and cleaner environment for visitors, employees and residents.

In April 2019, following a successful waste consolidation pilot on Bond Street, which led to a 95% reduction in waste vehicles, New West End Company launched a preferred supplier scheme for members, aiming to reduce vehicles in the West End and save businesses money. We have selected three suppliers that can provide waste and recycling collection and business supply services. The more companies that use the same suppliers means fewer vehicles in our district and better air quality for all.
