Bags of rubbish built up over Christmas have been left in packed bins as residents wait for normal bin collections to resume.
Christchurch Way in west Greenwich appeared in a particularly bad state.
Pictures show black bags wedged in large bins, with some left on the ground due to a lack of space.
There was also litter left by bins along the street.
Residents also appeared to have left rubbish outside their homes as they ran out of bin space.
