Recycling in Lambeth is easy!

As well as collecting textiles and waste electrical items for recycling (see previous post) Lambeth offer a regular weekly collection of items at the side of the road. The recycling collection takes place on the same day as your rubbish collection; you can recycle paper and cardboard, glass bottles and jars, cans and tins and plastic bottles.

On estates there is usually a central recycling bin where you can put your items - these should be easy to find in a convenient location. These bins are emptied regularly by the Lambeth estate collection crews.

For more information on what you can and cant recycle see the Lambeth recycling pages
