Refuse

Weekly refuse collections are on TUESDAYS for most of the estate (though THURSDAYS for some parts). See here to check with the postcode search.

  • Wheelie bins and bagged rubbish only
  • Put rubbish on doorsteps or pavements ONLY on the evening before collection day – preferably after dark.
  • Leaving rubbish out on other days attracts animals (dogs, cats, rats, foxes) to break into the bags, makes unnecessary work for the street sweeper and makes our estate look very unattractive.
  • Please keep your rubbish inside or in your backyard on other days. Capita or Southwark Council should have provided appropriate dustbins or wheelie bins for tenants'/residents' rubbish.

To report a missed collection or make a complaint, telephone Southwark Council on 020 7525 2000 or e-mail environment@southwark.gov.uk
