20-21 Electric Parade, George Lane, London E18 2LX, UK – 0345 740 4404

Nice staff. I had an interview with Mr. Anthony. Very polite and friendly person. Explained me everything and gave me all the details concerning opening and managing my personal account. At the end of the interview, I met the manager of that branch Ms. Natalia. She asked me about my experience with HSBC and about my last interview. Very efficient and professional manager!

Good Local bank - always a wait for anything other than the standard services

Nice to know how good they are near my place

Lloyds Bank

182 High St, Walthamstow, London E17 7JH, UK – 0345 300 0000

Niki and Emily are really helpful staff, who listen carefully (just as important as immediately 'doing' something). They are good at sorting out depressingly appalling errors made by various central customer services staff at Lloyds Bank. Also at dealing with people like me who are driven mad by this kind of carelessness or inaccuracy. They daily demonstrate why branch staff are crucial. Were it not for them I might well have moved all my accounts to another bank by now.

Not bad if you using the machines. Long queues

Dental Surgeries

Abbey Dental Walthamstow

25 St James St, Walthamstow, London E17 7PJ, UK – 020 8521 2816

Both doctor and nurse as well as reception staff were warm, welcoming, efficient and competent at their jobs. They explained everything in a positive way and made me feel more confident about oral hygiene and dentist visits, which means something coming from someone who's had a fear of dentists for the majority of her life. Highly recommended.

Never had any problems here, easy to get an appointment and excellent care

Forest Dental Care

73 Hoe St, Walthamstow, London E17 4SA, UK – 020 8520 5533

Clean and tidy surgery. Staff polite and courteous. Dr Malik is very professional in every which way. I have recommended Forest Dental Care to my friends and family. 5 Stars from us,

Excellent dental practice I can advice anyone who has a deep fear of the dentist, or indeed of any dental work. Forest Dental Care, is a practice that has exceptional dentist,s and staff. They are friendly and caring, putting patients at ease before any work is carried out. The reception staff are so friendly and helpful, even when the practice busy. Myself and all our our family have attended, both at the dentist's previous practice and now this one, for over 18 years. As a very nervous patient i can not recommend this dentist or indeed their colleague,s highly enough. The dentist,s will always make sure you have all the details of the work you require.and the reason for the work to be carried out, regardless if your a NHS patient or a private patient. The costing. Which as i am now having extensive dental work, as a private patient under going ( cosmetic treatment ) I have found to be more than reasonable. Mrs s stavri Visited in August 2017.

Wanstead Dental

11 High St, London E11 2AA, UK – 020 8530 4230

From the moment I made a phone call to the surgery up until the moment I left after my treatment, I felt welcomed. The receptionist was very welcoming as were the other members of staff. I had a root canal treatment with rubi and she was absolutely brilliant! She made the whole process so easy and painless. I recommend this place to anyone looking for not only a dental practice but a professional one too! The staff are always happy and do everything to make you feel welcome. The banter between staff and their customers is priceless! You are well informed of the whole journey and never feel rushed. Wanstead dental clinic is truly amazing. Everything from their staff to their processes. I will be returning to this clinic for any further dental work and will also be telling friends and family to do the same!!

From my experience, a great practice. First visit a few weeks ago, fantastic young female dentist Dr Kapoor with a lovely nurse. Assessed me on the same day of me calling and found the cause of my dental problems straight away! For anyone with dental phobia or previous vicarious experiences, book in asap! They did not disappoint!!

I have had my 3 children at Whipps and each time the care has been fantastic. Each time staff were excellent, professional, caring and positive. I am just home after quite a traumatic c section and I cannot sing the praises of the medical team in the operating theatre and all the midwives who provided after care they were all brilliant I am safe and recovering and baby is safe and vary happy. We can't thank the team enough. We MUST fight for our NHS and those who work tirelessly within it. Thank you Whipps for bringing my beautiful family safely into this world.

Find Recycling Centres

South Access Road Household Waste and Recycling Centre

42a South Access Road, London, Walthamstow E17 8AX, UK – 020 8509 3664

A high class of waste, tempered by friendly assistant personnel. This one time I was there dropping off some hardcore and paving slabs when a guy pulled up in a car that was jam packed with DVDs, there were tears in all our eyes as we watched him unload them into the general waste skip.

This recycling centre is usually very clean and tidy. The staff are friendly and helpful.

LondonEnergy Ltd

EcoPark, Advent Way, London N18 3AG, UK – 020 8803 1322

Fantastic facility - with too much to discover, see and learn. It's very nice to see that a company actually exists that avoids sending waste to landfills and recycle it + convert to energy. One thing to watch out for though - speed cameras (speed limit is 15).

Incredible company that does amazing things with waste.

GBN Services Ltd

Estate Way, Church Road, Leydon, London E10 7JN, UK – 020 8558 1234

GBN Services is best employer I ever have. Management is excellent even if you are foreign worker. Best Environment to work with, both with upper management and clients. During my work time I see only very satisfied customers. Keep going GBN . My job position is HGV driver.

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.
