Cardboard, Please flatten or tear up cardboard boxes!

Metal – tins, foil and foil trays, aerosol cans, jar lids & sweet/biscuit tins;
Food waste – Must be in the biodegradable bags available from Kingston Libraries or most supermarkets, or securely wrapped in newspaper. Please do not put loos food into the recycling bin.
Non-recyclable rubbish should be bagged and deposited in the paladin bins located in the rubbish room next to the back door of each block. Please don’t leave bags on the floor, and ensure the rubbish room doors are shut properly (pull string to unlatch door stay), otherwise foxes, etc. will get in & cause havoc. Try to use the back bin if you can reach it as this helps avoid the front one becoming overfull.
Unusual rubbish such as carpets, builders’ debris, wood, or unwanted items of furniture should be taken to the Villiers Road Household Reuse and Recycling Centre. Each flat should have a permit provided by the Council to allow use of this facility. For a fee the Council will collect bulky items (call 020 8547 5002), but do not dump them on your landing or in our grounds pending collection!
Landfill and food waste are collected every week, the rest of the recycling is collected every two weeks with Week 1 Plastic and cardboard, and week 2 Glass, paper and tins. All collections are usually on Tuesdays, except for Christmas Day and New Year’s Day – in which case they catch up on other days. Collection dates are attached.
