Rubbish collections

Rubbish is collected on Thursday mornings usually sometime between 6.30am and 10.30am.  Rubbish (black sacks and orange recycling bags) should only be put out after 8.00pm on Wednesday nights. Please do not put rubbish out at any other time during the week as it encourages foxes and fly tipping, and Lambeth may issue you with a warning notice.
