Mobile recycling centre

The mobile recycling centre is a service, funded by the London Waste and Recycling Board, to make it easier for residents to recycle materials that can't be collected as part of a normal household recycling collection.

Mobile recycling centre

The mobile recycling centre accepts the following items:

  • books
  • textiles and shoes
  • small electrical appliances
  • wood and timber
  • metal
  • cardboard
  • CDs and DVDs
  • printer cartridges
  • batteries
  • lightbulbs of any kind

These items are then brought to Southwark's Integrated Waste Management Facility where they are sent for recycling.

The mobile recycling centre does not accept household recycling or general waste

This service will visit a park or open space every Wednesday, from 10am to 1pm. To find out where the mobile recycling centre will be located, please look at the table below:
