    Start Date: 12.09.2020. Start Time: 10:00

    Location: Wandsworth

    A special day in September has been organised for residents to throw out any of their large household waste items in one of seven massive skips, as part of Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British September Spring Clean.

    Normally, there’s a charge for residents to dispose of bulky waste but on Saturday 12 September, between 10am and 2pm, you are invited to bring anything – for free - from sofas to mattresses and other large items - to one of the seven mega skips placed at seven locations in the borough. You can also bring black bags.

    The ‘mega skips’ will be found in areas which have endured a high level of illegal fly-tipping in recent years and council staff will be collating figures of fly-tipping prior to the event and afterwards to judge their effectiveness.

    Skips will be placed at:

    *Church Lane Car Park, SW17

    *Malva Close, SW18

    *Acanthus Road, SW11

    *Putney Park Lane, SW15

    *Balham Grove, SW12

    *York Road estate, Pennethorne House, SW11

    *Alton Estate, Downshire Field, SW15
