Timed rubbish and recycling collections

There are timed collection areas in 5 of our town centres – Brixton, West Norwood, Streatham, Waterloo and Clapham.

Residents — how your waste will be collected

Your waste and recycling should only be put out between the times stated for your area, on the correct day. You can find this information on your town centre page.

If you do not have access to a wheeled bin, please leave your rubbish and recycling sacks next to an item of street furniture, such as a litter bin or lamp post.


We'll deliver clear recycling sacks 6 times a year. Check what you can recycle. If you run out, you can order more recycling sacks.


Use a strong, black plastic bin bag. Check what you can put in your rubbish. Do not use recycling sacks for rubbish.
