Welcome to Help

Due to the effects of the current Coronavirus pandemic, from Monday (23 March) we will be changing waste service to focus on refuse collection for the next few weeks.

This will mean -

  • suspending the weekly separate food waste collection
  • suspending the collection of garden waste
  • collections of recycling wheeled bins (white lid and blue lid) will change from fortnightly to once every four weeks.

The green lidded refuse bin waste collections will remain fortnightly on your usual collection day.

Please put your food waste into this green lidded bin until further notice.

Residents who are signed up to Bexley’s chargeable garden waste service and use the brown lidded bin will have their membership automatically extended.

The borough’s reuse and recycling centres at Thames Road Crayford and Foots Cray are currently CLOSED

There are also a number of mini-recycling sites across the borough for residents to use.

Please be aware that this situation may change again depending on the level of staff absence. As with many services, things are changing daily.

Serco, the Council’s waste collection contractor, will be moving street cleansing staff onto waste collection, which will have priority for the foreseeable future.

Residents will not be able to report missed bins either online or by telephone for the time being.

Please do not call the Council about waste collections or recycling. The Contact Centre is extremely busy with higher priority issues and supporting vulnerable people. We must ensure that these calls can be answered promptly to keep our residents safe and well.

We will update our website frequently as the situation develops at www.bexley.gov.uk/coronavirus
