Bin collection days

Find out when we collect your rubbish and recycling

The Royal Borough of Greenwich is committed to providing weekly refuse and recycling collections.

Kerbside collections follow a fixed schedule except around bank holidays. We collect the bins weekly, and most households will have all three bins (green, blue and black) collected on the same day.

Please note: The collection schedules are for house collections only. If you live in an apartment or estate, these schedules will not be relevant - check with the caretaker or management company.

Collection times

Mixed dry recycling and food and garden waste collections will usually take place in the morning.

We start the 'all other waste' (black-top bin) collection rounds from 12noon. It may take several hours before we reach your house.

Bank holiday collection dates

Collection days around bank holidays may change.
