Townmead and Holiday Waste Collection

Townmead 200507

Residents are asked to “think long and hard” before they visit Townmead this long weekend and if they do visit – to check the guidance before they travel and switch off their engines whilst queuing. In addition, all households are reminded of the bank holiday changes to their weekly collection service next week.

Townmead Road Waste and Recycling Centre reopened on Monday. However, in order to ensure the safety of residents and staff and to ensure access to Mortlake Crematorium, there are significant rules in place regarding when and how people can access the centre. This includes residents only able to visit on certain days, based on their car registration number. Since the centre reopened – queues have been up to two hours long at certain points of the day.
New signage is being installed on the roads leading up to the Centre to remind drivers to switch off their car engines whilst queueing. The queue is formed in the outside half of the north-bound lane of Mortlake Road from the Chalker’s Corner end. More information can be found here.
Townmead will be open from 8am – 4pm on the bank holiday (Monday 25th May) but only for residents with ‘Odd’ registration number plates based on 2nd digit e.g. XX03 XXX plus old UK style, foreign, personalised, etc. plates.

The Spring Bank Holiday is on Monday 25 May. All collections that week will take place one day later than usual. For example, Monday collections will happen on the Tuesday, and Tuesday collections will happen on the Wednesday. Normal collections will resume on Monday 1 June.

The fortnightly paid for Garden Waste collection service has also restarted and the paid for Bulky Waste collection service is now available to book online, with collections commencing on the 26th May.

In Kew garden waste collections will be on Tuesday, 26th May, and Wednesday, 27th, one day later than normal.
