Mega Skip Days will be held each month.  Usually there is a charge for bulky waste collections, but you can take up to six items along to the mega skip nearest to you for free, including some electrical equipment and household items like mattresses and sofas.

Cllr Judi Gasser, cabinet member for the environment, said: “We will hold monthly Mega Skip Days because we know residents find this service useful. It also helps reduce flytipping because there’s no excuse to just dump things on the street.

“So come along with your bulky waste, put it in the mega skip and we will recycle it. And if you know an area that you think would benefit from a mega skip, email me at Cllr.J.Gasser@wandsworth.gov.uk.”
