Keep Southwark Safe

Waste collection services update

All services are currently operating normally, although unusually high levels of waste have resulted in some collections being slightly delayed.

  • communal Services (refuse and recycling) are generally operating normally, but high volumes of waste have meant that small numbers of collections may be carried into the following day
  • refuse & recycling kerbside services (green and blue bins) are operating as normal and collecting on the usual scheduled dates
  • organic waste collections (brown food and garden waste bins) are operating as normal and collecting on the usual scheduled dates


The use of some temporary crews has resulted in a higher level of missed collections than usual over the last 1 to 2 weeks.  Please report a missed collection on the reporting a missed collection page if your collection has not been completed by the end of the working day when it was due (ie after 4pm).

Abandoned bins

When to use the online form

You can use the online form to request removal of any waste and recycling containers that are no longer in use, and are an obstruction of the highway or footpath. Abandoned bins often attract litter and flytipping, and can cause nuisance to nearby residents and businesses.

When reporting an abandoned bin please provide information about the location, the type of bin, and whether it is overflowing or any other problems arising from it. We will investigate each complaint to see what action can be taken.  This might result in the bin being removed, or being returned to its user for storage on their premises.
