I sympathise! Since 240 Blackfriars Road
became fully occupied, local residents have been subjected to weekday collections and deliveries starting anytime between 3.00am and 6.30am. Some of these can last 15 / 20 minutes and are back-to-back, so sleeping through the horrendous noise is impossible. As in your case, speaking to the building management has been pointless and frustrating. Southwark Council
suggests keeping a log of dates, times and the names of the companies causing the disturbance. In our case we've supplied six months of data, but whether it will do any good no one yet knows.
One thing I would suggest is contacting the refuse collection company direct. We've had problems in the past with an adjoining office block and between their building manager and the refuse company we got it sorted out quite quickly. Really early collections can often be moved to a later timeslot, so it's worth giving it a go.
