Rubbish and recycling for blocks of flats and estates
We want to create a cleaner and greener Lewisham. We’ve written a new draft waste management strategy and need your views and opinions.
How to get rid of your rubbish and recycling
In your communal bin area you can find large blue rubbish bins and green recycling bins. Some bigger estates have more than one bin area.
Make sure you only use the rubbish bins for waste that can’t be recycled. Make sure you only use the rubbish bins for waste that can’t be recycled. Find out what you can put in your recycling bins.
Looking after your bin area
Please do not leave any rubbish on the floor or on top of the bins. This can attract vermin, cause problems with collections and stop other people from using the bins.
Privately managed blocks
If you live in a privately managed block of flats, you will need to ask your freeholder or managing agent to contact us to request communal rubbish and recycling bins.
If you have a garden, you can order a compost bin for £10. Find out more about composting.
