Find out more about refuse collections in Haringey
Refuse/general waste collection in Haringey includes the collection of wheelie bins, bags and communal bins according to property type.
Veolia is committed to providing residents with a reliable and effective refuse/general waste collection service. Our performance is constantly measured and we aim for continuous improvements in our service.
Since 2012, all kerbside properties receive a fortnightly collection of refuse/general waste. Recycling, food waste and garden waste (if subscribed) are collected weekly.
Once the refuse/general waste is collected it is taken to the Edmonton Eco-Park Energy from Waste Facility, which is overseen by the North London Waste Authority.
Bank Holiday Collection Changes
From August 2020 onwards there will no longer be any waste or recycling collections to households or flats on Bank Holiday Mondays or Fridays. Your collection will take place one day later than usual. If the Bank Holiday falls on a Monday, then collections for the whole week will take place between Tuesday and Saturday. If the Bank Holiday falls on a Friday then only Friday collections will be affected and these will take place on the Saturday.
Flats Above Shops
Flats Above Shops are no longer being supplied with pink refuse sacks or green recycling sacks to place their recycling and waste into. If you are a resident in a flat above a shop you must now visit your local library to collect a roll of green recycling sacks. The pink refuse sacks are no longer being supplied - please put out your general waste in black bags. Please could all residents in Flats Above Shops still ensure their waste is only placed in their designated collection point on the day of collection and the put-out time stated in the leaflet that all Flats Above Shops have received.
