Waste collection and street cleaning days

Find your rubbish and recycling collection and street cleaning days


Bad weather

If bad weather conditions disrupt our services, we will provide more information on this page.

Where to leave your rubbish and recycling sacks 

Do not leave waste sack on the pavement. Doing so, or leaving waste by lamp-posts, litter bins or trees could result in a fine of up to £2,500.

If you have a front garden please leave sacks of waste as near to the entrance as possible without putting them on the pavement.

If you don't have a front garden put sacks on the pavement by your front door before 6.30am on your collection day, but not before 6.30pm the day before.

Large communal/shared bin collection days 

To check what day(s) large communal bins should be emptied, email wasteservices@wandsworth.gov.uk.

Recycling sack deliveries

If we collect your waste in ordinary dustbins or rubbish sacks.

Three rolls of 30 recycling sacks should be delivered to you once a year.

Street cleaning 

Your street should be litter-picked soon after dustbins and recycling sacks are collected so that any spillage from waste awaiting collection is cleared promptly.

All streets should be cleaned thoroughly at least once a week. This service removes all litter, rubbish, fouling, leaves, grit, stones, small fly tips (up to 2 cubic metres) and any weeds over 10cm high.

The busiest streets such as town centres and main roads are swept between once and six times daily.

Christmas and New Years Day

Our waste collection and street cleaning services do not operate on Christmas Day or New Years Day.  Following these Bank Holidays, services will occur one day later for the rest of the week.
