Mega Skip Days

Mega Skip Days are an opportunity for people to dispose of bulky items for free.

Large skips are placed in neighbourhoods around the borough for all local residents to use.

Who can use the skip

The skips are open to residents of the London Borough of Wandsworth only. Proof of address may be required on the day.

We accept a recent photo ID, passport, driving licence, or utility bill (electricity, gas, or Council Tax) as proof of residency.

What you can bring

Residents can take up to six items along with them to the mega skip for free, including some electrical equipment and household items like mattresses and sofas.

One bag of rubbish counts as one item, as does one sofa, one mattress, etc.

We cannot accept the following items:

  • Hazardous objects or dangerous materials/chemicals such as sharp objects, needles, dangerous chemicals, plasterboard, flammable liquids and asbestos
  • Paint
  • Concrete
  • Car batteries
  • Cement, rubble or hardcore
  • Plasterboard
  • Engine oil or cooking oil
  • Fridges or other large electrical appliances


We are now running 18 Mega Skip Days a year, instead of the previous 12 after figures showed they led to an 11% decrease in fly-tipping.

Mega Skips Days will be held from 9am to 12 noon on:

  • Saturday 30 September 2023
  • Saturday 14 October 2023  - Location to be confirmed*
