We are making recycling and rubbish collection easier for everyone with a new neighbourhood based approach that means all your recycling and rubbish will be collected and your street cleared of litter on the same day.

The weekly collection includes:

Black bins for rubbish
Green bins for recycling (or recycling sacks if you still use them)
Food waste
Garden waste if you subscribe to that service
Pre-booked bulky waste collections

This new co-ordinated system will make our service more efficient and convenient for you while at the same time improving the environment and the cleanliness of your street.

Green wheelie bins being delivered next week in Thurlow Park

As highlighted in one of our December blogs from Monday 16 January 2017 green wheelie bins for recycling will start to be delivered to residents in Thurlow Park, replacing the current clear recycling sack service.

The new bins will:
• Encourage recycling as the new bins will hold five times more waste than a clear recycling sack
• Save money as over 10 million recycling sacks are issued every year – at huge cost to the Council. The new bins will save £450,000 per year.
• Make streets cleaner and tidier as for the first time waste collection, bulky collections and street cleansing will all take place on the same day. The mess created by foxes and other pests tearing open sacks will be significantly reduced, making streets look cleaner and tidier.

The new bins aren’t for food or garden waste. Food waste bins can be ordered by calling 020 7929 9000 and you can subscribe to the garden waste collection service online – https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/rubbish-and-recycling/food-waste/arrange-or-renew-garden-waste-collections

New green recycling wheelie bins – starts in January 2017

To help you recycle more sustainably, we’re replacing the current clear recycling sack recycling service for the majority of street properties with green recycling wheelie bins starting in January 2017.

This will allow you to put your recycling in the green recycling wheelie bin any time. The bins hold five times as much as a clear recycling sack and they will keep your recycling dry and make it hard for foxes (and other pests) to spread it all over the pavement.

The new bins aren’t for food or garden waste. Food waste bins can be ordered by calling 020 7929 9000 and you can subscribe to the garden waste collection service online – https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/rubbish-and-recycling/food-waste/arrange-or-renew-garden-waste-collections
