Rubbish and recycling
As a result of national driver shortages and COVID-related absences, we are experiencing delays to a small number of bin collections.
Staff are working hard to collect your bins as soon as possible and collections will continue over the weekend. If your rubbish and/or recycling hasn't been collected on your usual collection day, please leave your bins out – we will get to you as soon as possible. There is no need to report a missed collection.
Thank you for your patience and to our frontline staff for their hard work in challenging times.Gas canisters found in rubbish and recycling bins
A small number of nitrous oxide and other gas canisters have been found in rubbish and recycling bins during our collections. This is extremely dangerous and could result in an explosion – putting our waste crews and others at risk of serious harm.
You can dispose of gas canisters safely at the Landmann Way Recycling Centre in New Cross. Find out more about the Recycling Centre on our website.
