Mega Skip Day coming soon

Postby Community Editor » Wed Mar 15, 2023 4:32 pm

Mega Skip Days are held every month as part of Wandsworth Council's efforts to deter flytipping.


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: “Mega Skip Day is monthly to help residents dispose easily of bulky waste and to prevent flytipping and locations are chosen based on feedback from residents. If you know an area that would benefit from one, email me at”  

Mega Skip Day When: Saturday 25 March, 9am-12pm 

Where: Skips will be placed at the following locations. As we expect high demand on the day, we will operate on a first come first served basis. When the skips are full we will let you know via twitter, so please check our feed before setting off. 

Ashley Crescent, SW11. Find on a map 
Putney Park Lane, SW15. Find on a map
