Electrical recycling

Eighteen specially designed collection banks for small electricals are placed at recycling points across the borough. Anything electrical powered by batteries or a plug that you need to get rid of can be placed into the banks and will be taken for recycling.

The chutes are only 30cm x 25cm so larger items such as TVs and vacuum cleaners still need to be taken to one of the local Reuse and Recycling Centres or booked in for a bulky waste collection.

The 18 locations are:

  • Acre Lane, Brixton (by Tesco), SW2 8EB
  • Barrington Road, shopping parade, SW9 7EH
  • Baylis Road, SE1 7AA
  • Brixton Hill, Junction with Jebb Avenue, SW2 1SD

Taxi

Cabwise

To find a black cab, simply text HOME to 60835 to get the numbers of black cab ranks in the area you are texting from to your phone.

Alternatively, you can access 7,000 black cabs via just one telephone number - ‘One Number' on 0871 871 8710. This new taxi booking service combines all six of London's radio taxi circuits, allowing you to telephone 24 hours a day if you need to hail a cab.

You can be assured that a licensed, safe black cab has been reserved just for you. All taxis are equipped with sophisticated GPS satellite tracking systems, so locating and dispatching the closest available taxi is completely automatic. You can pay for your journey by cash or card.

Lambeth Taxicard

The Taxicard scheme allows those with severe, permanent mobility problems who cannot use public transport, subsidised rides, at a greatly reduced cost, in licensed black taxicabs which are wheelchair accessible. The scheme offers a 24 hour service, 365 days a year.

The user has to contribute £1.50 for each journey made and the council will pay up to a further £10.80 for each journey made. If the cost of the journey exceeds £12.30 (i.e. your contribution plus the council's contribution), the user has to pay the difference.

The user will also have to pay all normal extras for things such as luggage or travel companions. To apply:
