Order a new bin

Order a new rubbish bin, recycling bin, food waste bin or plastic sacks.

Houses, converted houses and flats above shops

Rubbish

Grey rubbish bin

  • If you live in a house, or a flat in a converted house, we will give you one 180-litre black wheelie bin for rubbish.
  • If you live in a flat above a shop, we will give you official Lewisham Council orange plastic sacks.

  • Only use your rubbish bin for waste that can’t go in your recycling or food waste bins.

Recycling

Green recycle bin

  • If you live in a house, or a flat in a converted house, we will give you one 240-litre green recycling bin.

  • If you live in a flat above a shop, we will give you official Lewisham Council clear plastic sacks.

Food waste

Flats in estates, small blocks and new developments

If we have removed your bins

We will not give you a new recycling bin or food waste bin if we had to remove your old one because you used it incorrectly. To make sure you use your bins correctly, find out what items can go in your recycling and food waste bins.
