Recycling collections and information

Recycling for homes at street level

Bins with orange lids 

If you live in a property at street level, you will probably have a recycling bin with an orange lid.

You can put your recycling into the bin loose. A guide to what items can go in your bin can be found here on our website.

Do not put black sacks into the bin as these cannot be recycled. Your recycling bin may not be collected if it contains non-recyclable items.

Orange bags  

If you do not have space for a recycling bin, then we will deliver orange bags for you to use. If you run out of orange bags call us on 020 8430 2000.

Where to put out your recycling 

Store your recycling bin or bags within the boundary of your property.

Present your bin by 6am on the day of collection at the edge of your property, for example next to your gate or at the end of your drive.

Do not place your bin on the pavement as your bin should not obstruct pedestrians.

If you use orange bags, please make sure you tie them up properly before you put them out next to your rubbish bin/bags for collection.
