We’re working hard to ensure waste collections are maintained during this challenging time. And despite recently having to suspend bulky waste collections in order to prioritise other services, we are now in a position to offer a limited number of booking slots for bulky waste.
Collections will restart on Tuesday 5 May and we’re taking bookings now. Please bear with us while we get this service back up and running and we hope to bring more capacity online over the coming weeks.
To book your slot, contact the Veolia Contact Centre on: 020 8885 7700 or for more information about the bulky waste collection service, including what can be collected, please see the Veolia's website (external link).

With a number of educational establishments closed down and government advice telling people to stay at home due to the coronavirus outbreak, there are warnings that the risk of online child abuse is a lot higher.
Children are spending a lot of time on the internet and there are concerns that abusers will exploit the situation as there is a shortage of moderators who combat online sexual abuse.
The National Crime Agency (NCA) (external link) and Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command (CEOP) (external link) have produced a toolkit (available for download below) that aims to promote their #OnlineSafetyAtHome campaign.
The toolkit has been designed to give children, parents and practitioners the best advice on how to keep children safe and do everything to stop online child sexual exploitation and abuse.

Haringey residents on low incomes will have their 2020/21 Council Tax bill reduced by up to £150 as we continue to help those in need of support during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
This reduction, which will be applied to your bill automatically, means you won’t have to pay anything if you owe less than £150 for this current tax year.
A new bill with reduced instalments will be sent to you as soon as possible, but you should continue to pay at your current rate in the meantime.
If you are currently out of work or your income has been reduced due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, you may qualify for help with your Council Tax.
For further information, see our COVID-19: Council Tax Reduction update page.
A brand-new suicide prevention and bereavement support service was launched yesterday (22 April) for people who live, work or study in the five North Central London boroughs of Barnet, Camden, Haringey, Islington and Enfield.
Launched alongside Rethink Mental Illness (external link), the local service is for people aged 18+ who are currently experiencing suicidal thoughts or have experienced suicidal feelings in the past. Support can also be provided to those affected by bereavement by suicide and those who have been exposed to suicide.
