your permit though), free of charge. The Council will collect domestic
white goods, TVs and computer monitors for £15.00 per visit. For
more details, or to arrange a date and time for collection, call
Croydon Council on 020 8726 6200 or see the Council
website where there is also advice about
re-cycling these items through Appliance Re-use Centre (ARC).
removal of green garden waste: The seasonal garden waste collection will
run for 24 weeks from April to September. Up to six
sacks of garden waste a year will be removed absolutely free of charge.
Place your green garden waste out for collection in the clear plastic
sacks provided by 7.00 am on your collection day. The sacks should be
placed on your property within arms reach of the pavement to allow the
service to operate efficiently. Two free clear sacks are
provided to each household annually, but up to six clear sacks,
supplied or purchased from the council, will be collected as part of
the service. They will not collect from bin bags or other types of bags
as they will not be able to see what is inside. Additional sacks can be
purchased for £1.00 each from all council libraries.
collection of hazardous waste: Small
quantities of hazardous waste can be taken away free of charge e.g. old
paint, garden chemicals etc. The safe removal of asbestos sheeting from
old garden sheds can also be arranged by calling Corporation of London - Hazardous Waste
Unit on 020 7332
