Street Cleansing

Picture of a street being sweptThis section provides information about the services the council and Veolia provide in partnership to keep Haringey's streets clean.

It is everyone's duty to help keep the streets clean. Please use the litter bins provided across the borough and if you have a dog then please clear up after it.

It is particularly important to dispose of waste properly as unlicensed waste companies will often dump items elsewhere in the borough. Please see the refuse collections section for more information.

The following pages are available in this section:

  • The street sweeping page covers the street cleansing provided across the borough, organised into eight villages.
  • The dog fouling page provides information about how to prevent and report dog fouling in your street.
  • The fly tipping section tells you how to report dumped items so that the council can arrange for them to be cleared.

For information on treatment of road and pavement surfaces during frost, snow and ice conditions, please visit the road and street gritting pages.
