Refuse and recycling

Possible delays to bin collections

Haringey and Veolia are working hard together to ensure that a range of waste collection services continue to be provided across the borough.

Brexit and coronavirus have greatly reduced the availability of HGV drivers, and like councils and other organisations across the country, our workforce has been impacted. Our staff are continually working hard and are doing their best, so please bear with us in these uniquely challenging times.

With more people working from home following the pandemic, we are seeing more waste produced at the kerbside and this is increasing pressure on waste services. You may, as a result, experience some disruption or delay to our collections but we will keep these to a minimum.

If your household waste, recycling or garden waste isn’t collected on the usual day, bear with us as we will aim to collect within 48-72 hours. We may be running slightly behind so there is no need to report it.
