Large items

Not only does fly-tipping look awful, but it’s also a serious fire and health hazard.

Do you know how to dispose of your large unwanted household items conveniently and safely?

Collection points

There are collection points on some estates for unwanted large items. We will let you know if your estate has a bulk waste collection service.

If you live elsewhere in Lewisham and need to get rid of large household or electrical items, you can take them to Lewisham Council’s Reuse and Recycling Centre in New Cross. Alternatively, Lewisham Council can collect them from you for a small charge.

White goods

Take white goods such as fridges, freezers and washing machines to Lewisham Council’s Reuse and Recycling Centre in New Cross.

Never dump white goods because these can be particularly hazardous.

Lewisham Council can collect white goods from you for a small cost.

Free mattress collection

Lewisham Council offer a free mattress collection service.
