Pesach collection service once again available to Jewish residents
Published Monday 19 March 2012
Barnet Council will once again be providing a personalised Pesach collection service for Jewish residents in the run up to Passover.
The dedicated refuse service will be in operation along around 300 pre-designated routes, making it simple for residents to dispose of Pesach refuse and Chometz before the start of Passover.
Residents who do not live in one of the selected streets can contact Barnet Council to arrange collection free of charge.
Those wishing to take advantage of the service should place their Pesach loose food waste, without packaging, into their green waste bin for recycling.
All other Pesach waste should be put into black plastic refuse sacks or domestic waste containers.
Council refuse crews will be out on Wednesday 4 April and Thursday 5 April to collect black sacks in pre-designated roads.
They will then be out again on Friday 6 April to collect black sacks and green waste.
Black sacks, domestic waste containers and green bins (for the Friday collection only) should be left out on the property boundary by midday on collection days.
Residents can call the council on 020 8359 4600 to find out which streets are on the list, or check the full list which is being made available to all Barnet synagogues.
Residents wishing to arrange a free Pesach collection should call 020 8359 4600 or email email@example.com
Phone lines and email will be open until 5.15pm on Thursday 5 April.
