Rubbish and recycling collections over Christmas 2009

Details are being sent around this week about the changes to the rubbish and recycling collections over the Christmas period.

And the good news is that there is no change if you have your normal rubbish and recycling collection on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. If you normally have your rubbish collected on a Friday this will now be collected on Saturdays for the next two weeks (Christmas Day, 25 December and New Years Day, 1 January.) The normal collections will resume on Monday 4 January 2010.

And they will even collect Christmas trees!

You can put your Christmas tree out with your normal rubbish and recycling in the week commencing Monday 11 January 2010 and it will be collected and recycled by Lambeth.

If you live on an estate or other housing that doesnt have a kerbside collection then Lambeth will be running Christmas tree recycling facilities at four sites in the borough every day in the week 11 -15 January 2010.

The Christmas tree recycling site nearest to us in Vassall Ward is in Kennington Park, SE11 (just at the top of Brixton Road) Other places you can take you tree are Clapham Common SW4, Streatham Common SW16 and Lambeth Reuse and Recycling Centre, Vale Street SE27
