Bulky waste collection

Dispose of your bulky waste correctly to avoid a fine – use Lambeth Council’s collection service.

Sign up to Lambeth’s bulky waste collection for cleaner streets and estates - writes lambeth.gov.uk.

How much does it cost?

Each collection costs £21 for up to four separate items or four bags. There is a charge of £6 for each additional item that is collected.

You can also share bulky waste collections with neighbours to save money.

 Who can use this service?

Most residents in Lambeth can use the bulky waste service, including private home owners, renters and council tenants/leaseholders.

If you live on a housing estate managed by Lambeth Housing Management (ie a ‘council estate’), you will need to arrange your bulk waste collection through your estate management office.

Rubbish dumped illegally

Dumped rubbish frustrates us just as much as you. Not only is dumped rubbish unsafe and looks unsightly, it costs more than £140 per tonne to clear away. We want our streets to be clean, pleasant places to live in and we’re determined to catch those responsible for dumping their rubbish illegally. We’re using portable cameras to decrease the amount of waste dumped illegally, but we still need your help to catch the offenders!


Our enforcement officers rely on residents to provide information regarding those responsible for dumping waste illegally so that we can prosecute. If we can identify the offender, financial penalties can be issued and if necessary offenders can be referred for prosecution at the local magistrates’ court. These offenders could face a fine of up to £50,000, community punishment orders or prison sentences of up to 5 years.
