How RecycleZone Works

You don’t have to worry about a thing when you use us. Simply get in touch with a member of our friendly team who will be happy to help with any enquires or requests you have. They’ll ask you a few questions about the size, quantity and type of rubbish you want removing before providing you with a free, no-obligation quote.

Then, if you’re happy, they will book an appointment on a day that suits you, even providing you with a time slot in the morning or afternoon.

Once our team is there, you won’t have to lift a finger. They’ll do all the heavy lifting of moving your items and loading them before taking them off to a suitable disposal location (recycling centre or, for a very small portion of the waste that we collect, landfill).

Our rubbish removal services are always carried out in a safe, efficient and eco-conscious manner. We always send over any necessary compliance documents as soon as we leave your premises, keep an extensive log of the journey of your rubbish and inform you where it has ended up.

Other Local Waste Removal Options

Donate Your Unwanted Items to Charity

British Heart Foundation – You can use their online form to organise a free collection service to donate usable items such as furniture, electrical goods and home accessories. Alternatively, you can pop into their branch on Balham High Rd.

Wandsworth Oasis – They operate a bulky goods collection service, up to six miles from one of their shops. The workers may ask for a few photos to assess the condition of your items – a good rule of thumb is if you wouldn’t buy it, don’t donate it. Oasis has a simple form you can fill out to book your slot.

What To Do Before Donating

It is always good to give your chosen charity a call before you visit or book a collection. This is to ensure they are able to accept your donation (this is especially important when donating large pieces of furniture) and make sure it is the best place for your items.

You should also check that your items are of good quality. This means they are mostly undamaged, dry and sellable. If you have electrical goods, make sure you have any necessary plugs or chargers included.

Wandsworth Council Waste Collection

You can organise a bulky waste removal on your normal waste collection day from Wandsworth council to help you get rid of larger items that you wouldn’t be able to fit in your bins.

It’s a very easy process but here’s a few steps you can take to make sure the collection goes smoothly:

  • Put out all goods by 6:30am on your collection day.
  • Organise your waste so they are neat (make sure you don’t leave it on a public highway). If you don’t have an easily accessible area, place it beside your front door.
  • Attach a note to the items just to let the collectors know what to take away.

Recycling Centres Near You

There are two recycling centres in Wandsworth, one on Smuggler’s Way and the other on Cringle Street (this one only accepts waste delivered in vans). Just make sure you have your residence permit and identification handy when you visit.
