Green garden waste temporary sites

To provide you with improved local services and to reduce traffic congestion at the reuse and recycling centres, we operate five green garden waste collection sites every weekend from April until November. All the waste collected at these sites will be composted.

The sites will be open from Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 April 2014 and closed after Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 November 2014.

Alternatively, why not compost at home?  You can also dispose of garden waste through our collection service.


These sites will only receive bagged, green garden waste from residents with a Bromley waste permitPlease do not put your garden waste in builders' sacks, as these are too heavy to be lifted safely.

No commercial garden waste will be accepted.

Yes please No thanks 
Grass cuttings Tree trunks and large branches 
Prunings (no bigger than 2 inches round) Soil and rubble 
Dead plants Garden furniture, flower pots and plastic debris

The scheme operates every weekend at the following times and locations:

Saturdays : 11am - 4pm
Sundays: 8am - 12noon

Local collection sites: 

  • Beckenham, Unicorn Primary School (Creswell Drive off South Eden Park Road).

Please note: The St George's Road car park site in Beckenham has closed and is replaced by the Unicorn Primary School car park in Creswell Drive.
