London Borough of Croydon

Under Environmental legislation managing agents, developers or owners of new builds and conversions should consult the Waste & Recycling team before planning permission is granted.

You are required to purchase or hire landfill & recycling containers from the council or a third party. It is your responsibility to arrange delivery of the containers.

How can we help?

We can provide a range of container sizes to specifically meet your needs and help keep your waste disposal costs to a minimum. All containers sizes comply with European legislation. 

Apply now by completing the New builds and conversions online form. Please attach a copy of the ground floor plan layout showing the bin store access and access leading to the development.

To ensure your containers are supplied on time, you must provide a minimum of one months’ notice before the completions of any development or conversion of an existing property.

Containers need to be located within 20meters of the collection vehicle. If this is not possible then the drive leading to the bin store will be required to meet highway standards.
