Free compost bin giveaways to Southwark residents

In celebration of this year’s Compost Awareness Week (2 to 8 May), Veolia the recycling and waste partner of Southwark Council are giving away five compost bins every day for the whole week. The giveaway is taking place from Monday 2 May at the Reuse and Recycling centre on Old Kent Road and is open to all Southwark residents. 

During Compost Awareness Week Southwark residents, on a first come first served basis, can get one free compost bin per household which will be offered to the first five customers of the day.

Residents are required to bring proof of residency and photo identification with them when they make their collection.
