Bin collection frequency

  • Rubbish, waste and recycling

For most residents, your mixed recycling, food waste and refuse waste will be collected on the same day each week.

If you live in a house, a converted house or a small block of up to 5 purpose built flats you can find out your collection day for waste and recycling by postcode.

Find out more information on recycling if you live in a flat block with 6 or more properties.

If you have your own bins (you do not share the bins with anyone else) please ensure these are at the boundary of your property by 6.30am on your collection day.

Bank holiday collections

Your bins are collected on your normal collection day throughout the year including bank holidays.

However, during the Christmas period, bin collections may be subject to change. Find out the bin collection schedules during Christmas. Residents can also contact us by emailing sbs@barnet.gov.uk or calling 020 8359 4600 for Christmas collection information.

Collections during severe weather

In severe weather conditions there may be some delays to your waste and recycling collections. We will work to complete all scheduled collections wherever possible, but if you need further information please contact Street Based Services by emailing sbs@barnet.gov.uk or telephoning 020 8359 4600.
