Barnet Council will provide an additional refuse collection service to residents for chametz waste before Passover.
The dedicated refuse service will be in operation along 300+ pre-designated roads, making it simple for residents who wish to dispose of their chametz waste before the start of Passover.
Residents can check whether they live on a pre-designated chametz collection road, by visiting: www.barnet.gov.uk/pesach-collection where guidelines for putting out chametz waste for collection are also set out.
Residents who do not live on a pre-designated road can pre-book a free chametz collection of up to three sacks by contacting the council by midday on 12 April. Collections for these residents will take place from 6am on Friday 19 April only.
The council will also be making five fixed locations available to residents to dispose of waste from 10am to 4pm on Friday 19 April. Details of the locations are available at www.barnet.gov.uk/pesach-collection
Councillor Dean Cohen, Chair of the Environment Committee, said: “We’re delighted to be able to offer our residents this special collection service for another year. I am sure that all Jewish residents who observe Passover appreciate the convenience of having their chametz waste collected.”
Residents can donate reusable clothing to charity shops and furniture to the Barnet Furniture Centre. Other items can be taken to the Reuse and Recycling Centre, Summers Lane, N12 0RF.
