Today sees the launch of our new Do the Right Thing posters. We want to highlight some of the thousands of people in Lambeth who already do the right thing for the environment.

Main post content

Do The Right Thing

Meet Rajan, Hanna, Orsetta, Valcie, John, Ann (with Alfie) and Michaela. Over the coming weeks we will feature their stories about how they do the right thing and why.

There are many ways to Do the Right Thing to keep Lambeth cleaner and greener, below are just some of them:

Recycle or Donate

There are so many ways to recycle or donate unwanted items in Lambeth.

There are three different services which collect recycling from your home; weekly recycling collection service (recycling sacks), food waste (kerbside properties only) and garden waste (kerbside properties only).

For many other items there are Recycling drop-off points situated all around the borough. To find your nearest location and what can be recycled there please view the Recycling banks and centres map. This map also includes public libraries, shop collection points and charity shops.

Community Freshview

You could organise a Community Freshview and bring your neighbours together for a day to spruce up your street. This could include brightening up a green space, giving a facelift to a disused area of land or any other activity that improves the local environment. We will help residents do this by giving equipment, expertise and some extra helping hands.

The feedback from participants has been really positive and it’s been amazing to see the difference they have made. Take a look at the Facebook group to read more at

Contact the Community Freshview team by email or visit the Community Freshview webpage.

Green Champions

You could become a Green Community Champion to help inspire your neighbourhood to be more environmentally sustainable. We can help you by providing support, advice, information and connecting you with useful contacts.

Contact the team by email or visit the Green Champions webpage.

Snow Wardens

We appreciate that no one wants to think about snow now that spring has finally sprung, however we are always happy to sign people up to become a Snow Warden. You can volunteer individually, or as part of a group to help keep your street safe in the winter by clearing ice and snow from the pavement. All snow wardens receive tools and training.

Contact the team by email or visit the Snow Wardens webpage.

We want to hear your stories

Would you like to share your story about how you do the right thing to keep Lambeth cleaner and greener?   Do you know someone who is doing the right thing within your community?

  2. Kirsty Wilkins says:

    I am a volunteer and trustee of a charity called In-Deep, which works with elderly people in Lambeth, South Westminster and Battersea. We offer friendship and support to these people through a wide range of events and activities, such as the monthly lunch club, the Christmas parties, the Christmas hamper scheme and the therapy scheme. I mainly volunteer at the monthly lunch club, the monthly community meal and the over 50s choir. The charity aims to help those on low incomes and those who do not have family close by through friendship and understanding among those from different backgrounds. Everything provided in Lambeth is put on at the Coneyway Clubhouse on Coney Way.

      Hi Kirsty

      Thanks so much for letting us know about the great work you are doing in the community for older people. What do people do if they also want to volunteer?
