To ensure refuse does not build up in the common areas or bin stores please consider the following advice:

  • Please ensure that no rubbish bags are left outside of your front door in the communal areas or on the floor of the bin stores. This can be a health and safety hazard to all residents and may also attract unwanted animals/vermin (such as rats, foxes, maggots and mice).
  • All rubbish bags must be securely fastened and placed in the bins provided. If all of the bins in a particular store are full, please use an alternative bin store to dispose of your waste. If there are no bins available please call us on 0208 370 4810. Only refuse placed in the bins will be removed by the council’s refuse collection team.
  • Please do not dispose of bulky items such as beds, tables, chairs, mattresses, televisions, ironing boards, wardrobes, cabinets, etc (any large household items). The refuse stores can only be used for items that can be places in the bins. If large household items are left by the bin store, your service charge will likely increase, as an external contractor will need to be employed to remove the items. This office and contracted cleaners regularly search dumped refuse in an attempt to identify those residents dumping items so that any collection costs can be recovered from the owner of the property concerned.
