Time banded collections

We are introducing specific times in which households and businesses in town centres must put out their waste for collection.

We are bringing in time banded collections to ensure that:

  • street cleanliness improves and our town centres are cleaner and greener places to live, work and shop
  • illegal tipping decreases
  • there are fewer obstructions on roads or pavements.

Households as well as some businesses in time banded areas will need to put their recycling and waste out in sacks for collection rather than using bins.

Households will have clear sacks for recycling and purple sacks for general refuse available to them. Businesses who have collections with Barnet Council will have blue sacks for recycling and red sacks for refuse waste available to them.
