Barnet Council apologise for any delays in completing your recycling and waste collections. Collections are running half a day behind schedule in some areas.
Last week they did have staffing shortages on Monday, and as a result a number of collections remained outstanding at the end of the day.They are prioritising any collections that were not completed in line with the revised festive period schedule and will then focus on carrying out the collections due today. Please put your bin out on your revised collection day this week and they will collect on this day or within 24 hours. They will be working later into the evenings and throughout the weekend to complete collections.
Next week, collection schedules return to normal. They have allocated additional resources and expect to carry out Monday collections as per normal schedule. You can check your correct collection day using the calendar sent to households in October 2018, or by using the bin collection date checker.
Remember – They will be collecting real Christmas trees between 6 January and 3 February 2019 if left out by your bin on your collection day.
