Missed Green Garden Waste Collections

We are aware that a number of streets in Wallington South did not have their green garden waste collected on the scheduled day.

We have raised this matter with Veolia who have advised that all the missed green garden waste collections will be completed by Monday 22nd January. Veolia also apologised for the delays.

If your Green Garden Waste Collection was missed please leave your bin out so it is clear it needs emptying.


Garden waste collections are still running behind with the promised collections on 22nd failing to materialise. We have been advised that this is mostly due to driver shortages over the last week. Veolia had crews working last weekend to try to catch up, however there are still a number of collections especially in Carshalton and parts of Wallington that have been delayed.

To address this and catch up all the missed collections and Christmas tree pick ups, Veolia are running additional crews this week and intend to service all properties due last week and all properties due this week.

To compensate residents for the missed collections they will get two months Garden Waste collections free, so the period covered will now be 14 months rather than 12.
