If you are a Lambeth resident you can use Smugglers Way Household Waste and Recycling Centre in Wandsworth.

Covid-19 Smugglers way recycling centre:

The recycling centre re-opened on Monday 11 May 2020. Although we will be open, this is not a return to normal operations. We have introduced new measures to keep residents and staff safe and to reduce queues.

These measures mean that:

  • If you are unwell with symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) or in a 14 –day household isolation you should stay at home.
  • We have changed our weekday opening times.
  • You can only visit on certain days, depending on your car registration number.
  • You will be required to stay 2 metres away from all other users and Centre staff.
  • You can only drop off Green Garden Waste, large electrical items (such as washing machines or fridges), small electrical items, cardboard and mixed paper and General Waste (the waste that you put in your Rubbish bin). No other waste or recycling will be accepted.
  • You are advised to wear gloves for your own protection.

More information and opening times can be found on the WRWA website.

More information

If you want to use a van or tow a trailer to dispose of non-chargeable household waste, let Western Riverside Waste Authority know before you go.

If an item is it good cosmetic condition without any scratches or dents you can leave it in the reuse area at Smugglers Way. The item doesn't have to be working. Any monitors or TVs left for reuse must be flat screen.

This facility has a workshop on site so can repair some broken items.
