This page aims to inform residents on what they can and can’t recycle in Lewisham. This mainly covers the recycling collection services we provide. If you live in a street property you should have access to a 240 litre recycling bin. This will be an all green bin or a bin with a grey body with a green lid. If your property is on an estate then there should be large ‘Euro’ bins positioned nearby . Examples of these can be seen below.
We also have bags available to help those living on estate properties. These can be used to bring recyclables to the near communal recycling bins. There are also clear sacks for those properties that cannot house recycling facilities such as flats above shops. Examples are below.
Please also make sure when you are using all of the above receptacles that the correct items go in them. If you are not sure, please see the information below.
