Recycling bins

If you have booked for a bin or bag delivery on our website, received a reference number and have not received your bin, we would like to apologise for the delay.

We have unfortunately had a high percentage of staff off with COVID-19 or who are isolating. We are prioritising refuse collections at this time.

As soon as we have more staff available we will resume delivering booked requests.

Old-style incandescent light bulbs are not recyclable and must be disposed of in your refuse bin. New-style energy-efficient light bulbs are recyclable, but must be disposed of at participating light bulb recycling locations.

Energy efficient light bulbs can be disposed of by taking them to the reuse and recycling centre at Landmann Way in New Cross.

They can also be taken to Recolight light bulb recycling points within the borough.
