During summer weekends – from Saturday 24 March to Sunday 25 November – Sydenham residents can dispose of their garden waste at the Girton Road car park
The site is open to residents from 9am to 12 noon on Saturdays and Sundays.
You can bring your garden waste in plastic or reusable bags. Flowers and plants, grass clippings, hedge trimmings, leaves, and twigs and branches up to four inches in diameter will all be accepted.
We cannot accept kitchen waste, vegetable peelings, soil, turf, stones or Japanese knotweed. No trade waste or trailers, vans or open back vehicles will be allowed.
Please note: Japanese knotweed is controlled waste and must be treated and disposed of by a licensed waste transfer company. Under no circumstances can Lewisham Council remove this waste.
