One Bag a Week Challenge

Welcome to the One Bag a Week Challenge! Reducing the amount of rubbish we produce is an easy way to reduce our impact on the environment.

If you’re currently throwing away more than one bin bag of rubbish a week, the One Bag a Week Challenge is here to help you waste less and help Lambeth become carbon neutral by 2030.

Why one bag a week?

If you’re an average household, reducing your rubbish to one bag a week is easy to do if you recycle as much as you can and are careful about what you throw away. The One Bag a Week challenge makes it really easy for you to keep track of your progress and you'll be surprised by how satisfying it is when you manage to get your rubbish down to one bag a week - it’s a real achievement!
