How to present your rubbish and recycling for collection

  • Put your rubbish and recycling out by 6am. Collection rounds can change due to roadworks, adverse weather or operational reasons, so if you put it out later it may not be collected.
  • Place your rubbish and recycling at the front edge of your property, where it can be clearly seen from the road, but not on the road or pavement.
  • All rubbish should be presented for collection in a black sack (except for residents with no outside space who are supplied with blue bags for household rubbish).
  • If you store your black sacks in an outside bin, you will need to take them out of the bin on your collection day. Split bags will not be collected for health and safety reasons.
  • You can help us by keeping your recycling dry: store it under cover until your collection day and place paper and cardboard in a plastic bag.
  • If your property opens straight onto the street please call us to make other arrangements on 020 8274 4902.
