How to reduce your rubbish to one bag a week - collection from bins

The One Bag a Week Challenge is here to help you waste less and help Lambeth become carbon neutral by 2030. See how you can reduce your rubbish collected from bins.

Get everyone involved

Unless you’re the only person in your household who uses a bin, getting your rubbish down to one bag a week might be difficult unless everyone’s on board.

So if you’re taking some of the steps we’ve recommended, such as having different bins for recycling and rubbish, it’s important that you let everyone know which materials should go into each bin.

You’ll also need to make sure everyone gets into the habit of rinsing out their food packaging before recycling.
