Bin huts

There are several bin huts around the development, clearly marked. These are for domestic use only. Please use the recycling (green) / non-recyclable (silver) bins appropriately. For recycling, posters are clearly displayed on the green bins and on the stockade wall.

This blog post has full details of where the bin huts are and what can be recycled.

Some people come on to the estate to rifle through the bins. Having non-residents on site looking around is a security risk for all of us. Please do not leave items like unwanted clothing in the bins, consider giving them to charity instead. See this blog post for details of local charities.

Don’t put un-shredded, confidential, personal information, including bank statements and letters with your personal details on in your waste to help to reduce the risk of your identity being stolen.

For non-domestic waste, such as building waste, commercial and hazardous waste, including oil and paint, please use the recycling centres provided by Lambeth Council. Find out more on the Lambeth Council website.

Bikes and bike sheds

Bikes cannot be left in the communal areas of the flats. This is for safety, as advised by the Fire Service, our insurance policy and Health and Safety laws. If you discover a bike in a communal hallway, please contact us so that we can arrange for its removal.

Do not chain bicycles to stairs or other parts of the internal fabric of the flat blocks, nor to the railings, which form part of the estate property. They will be removed and the owner will be charged an administrative fee for its return.

There are five gated/closed bike sheds on the estate. If you want to use these, please contact us, and we will provide padlock codes.

Security advice:

  • None of the sheds are marked, to avoid drawing attention to them
  • Be sensible when using these/entering the codes as break-ins have happened before
  • Bikes are left are at the owner’s risk. BGMCL cannot be held responsible for any damage, loss or theft.

The bike sheds can get full so please be respectful of neighbours and don’t leave bikes in there for months if they are no longer used. There are some local charities that are happy to take unused bikes. BGMCL occasionally look through the bike sheds and tag obviously unused/damaged bikes for removal.

Motorbike area

There is a non-gated motorbike area that can be used by residents.

These are used at the motorbike owner’s risk. BGMCL cannot be held responsible for any damage, loss or theft.
