COVID-19: Increasing pressure on waste services means possible delays. We’re working hard to collect your waste and recycling, but if we miss a collection, please bear with us as we will collect it within 48 hours.
Haringey Community Toilets Scheme
The Community Toilets Scheme enable local business like pubs, restaurants and shops to work together with the Council to make more clean, safe and accessible toilets available to the public.
Our interactive map shows the different locations and facilities that are available. Premises participating in the scheme display stickers on their doors and windows showing male, female and wheelchair accessible facilities.
Members of the public can use these toilet facilities during the premises opening hours and without the need to make a purchase. Businesses have the right to refuse access entry in exceptional circumstances.
There are many challenges facing us in providing public toilets, such as:
There is no legal requirement for local authorities to provide public toilets, so there is no government funding set aside for it. This means that we have to find the money from elsewhere and other services may be more of a priority.
Vandalism and graffiti happen regularly and are a huge drain on resources. This is the reason why many public toilets have been closed. There are other forms of anti-social behaviour, which threaten the safety of genuine visitors to public toilets, and solutions are very difficult and / or expensive to provide.
