The green waste collection points are in the usual places, which are,

  • Riddons Roadjunction withMayeswood Road
  • Girton Roadcar park, Sydenham
  • Laurence House car park, Catford
  • Kitto Road, outside The Hill Station, Telegraph Hill

Please remember that plant material should be no bigger than 4 inches in diameter (logs, large branches etc.). The green waste can be brought in plastic sacks or preferably reusable bags.

The things that we don’t want you to bring along are,

  • Kitchen waste (food waste, peelings etc.)
  • Soil
  • Turf,
  • Stones, rocks, bricks etc.
  • Japanese Knotweed

Proof of address and ID must be shown to enable you to use the service and we don’t accept any trade waste or trailers and open back vehicles. We would also take action against anyone caught flytipping at these sites.

  1. I have moved into a property in Catford but the back garden held an enormous amount of big rocks and stones. I notice you do not accept them at the recycling point. Can you tell me how to dispose of them please. Thank you

    • Hi Joan,

      The best solution might be to hire a skip or find a company that can supply and take away filled bulk bags?

      Please get back to us igf you need any furthet help.
