How depot works are affecting bin collections

Barnet Council’s Oakleigh Depot is currently undergoing essential works to resolve the issue of ground movement on the main access road into the site.

We thank you for your patience whilst the works are being carried out.

Garden waste collections - resumed from 3 February

Fortnightly garden waste collections have now resumed and your first fortnightly garden waste collection will take place on your normal collection day on either the week commencing 3 February or 10 February.

You can check your next fortnightly garden waste collection date.

Please ensure your bin is presented at the boundary of your property by 6am on your collection day.

Temporary footpath closure

As part of the remedial works taking place at Oakleigh Depot, a small section of the pedestrian pathway along Oakleigh Road South, which runs adjacent to the depot, is temporarily closed. There is no immediate cause for concern, but the professionals involved in monitoring the depot works have decided that this is a necessary, but precautionary, measure.

The ‘Spencer Road’ bus stop will not be affected by this. Pedestrians using this road will need to cross the road to the park side pedestrian pavement.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and further updates will be published here.

Bin collections

There may be disruption to bin collection services while we carry out urgent work at Oakleigh Depot which is where our recycling and waste services are mainly run from.

Urgent work is being carried out to fix the issue of the ground movement, so that we can continue to run services safely from the depot.

Collections may take place later into the day up until 10pm.

What you need to do:

  • put your bins out at the boundary of your property by 6am on your collection day
  • if you think your bin has not been collected check our bin collection updates page at the end of your collection day for the latest information
  • If this doesn’t resolve your bin collection query, you can report your missed bin after 10pm on your collection day.

Changes to some bin collection days

From the week beginning Monday 11 November, a small number of households have a change to their recycling and waste collection day.
