Rubbish collection and recycling centre update

Royal Greenwich council has announced that from September 1st you will no longer need to book an appointment to visit the Re-use and Recycling centre in Nathan Way. However, to help maintain the safety of the site, it will close to be sanitised for 30 mins every day from 12 pm to 12.30pm. Do not attend at this time as there will be no access permitted and queuing is not allowed.

Opening hours are:  

Monday to Friday: 8am to 12pm then 12.30pm to 6.30pm  

Saturdays: 8am to 12pm then 12.00pm to 5pm  

Sundays and bank holidays: 9am to 12pm then 12.30pm to 4.30pm  

Access to the site is free for Royal Greenwich residents who show a valid driving license or Council Tax bill on arrival. It costs £10 if you’re a resident but cannot show either a valid driving license or Council Tax bill.

Also, our bin collections in the Triangle next week will be on Tuesday rather than Monday as those invaluable key workers our bin collectors are taking a well-deserved break for the Bank Holiday.

Licensing Team Request - North Pole

Since the re-opening of pubs on 4 July, we have received numerous complaints from residents regarding anti-social behaviour and the lack of social distancing being observed at the North Pole in Greenwich High Road. The North Pole have now installed new signage to manage social distancing and are also operating a new system to manage the flow of people leaving by allowing those who have ordered cabs to wait inside which should help to prevent disturbing residents close by.

However, due to the recent evidence submitted by local residents of said anti-social behaviour and the lack of social distancing at the North Pole, the Licensing Team and Commercial Environmental Health Team are leading an investigation. They have asked if you witness any further disturbances from this establishment can you please forward evidence (photo / video footage) and submit it to the following email:  and quote reference number SR63457. Please also continue to cc any email to Maureen O'Mara who is also overseeing these complaints.
