Christmas and New Year rubbish and recycling in Brixton and Lambeth

So the party is over, almost, and you’re left with mountains of discarded wrapping paper, empty bottles and even a rapidly needle-shedding tree.

For the rest of this week, recycling and rubbish street collections will take place the day your normal collection date. And Lambeth are also being kind enough to pick up and “recycle” your real Christmas tree is you leave it out on the week beginning January 7.

We’ve pasted the rubbish and recycling timetable below, and for anything else check out the Lambeth council website.
