Pesach collection service 2019

We are providing a dedicated Pesach collection service to the Jewish community. Please note collection arrangements are different from last year.

This additional refuse service will be in operation at houses on 300-plus pre-designated roads, making it simple for residents to dispose of Pesach refuse and Chometz before Passover.

Handy tips for managing your Pesach waste

  • Collections of your recycling, refuse and garden waste bins will take place on your usual collection days.
  • Waste not presented in either refuse bins or refuse sacks as set out above will not be collected.
  • Please do not place any excess food waste in the green garden waste bin or blue recycling bin. Food waste should be placed in your black refuse bin or refuse sacks.
  • Please do not overfill refuse bins or refuse sacks, as it may not be possible to collect these containers.
  • If you have more Pesach waste than you can fit in your refuse bin or refuse sacks as set out above, you can use the bulky waste collection service. This is a chargeable service.
  • If you have missed your collection you can use the Barnet waste collection vehicles as listed above on Friday 19 April or take your waste to the Recycling and Reuse Centre, Summers Lane, N12 0RF.
  • For unwanted old goods such as clothes and furniture, residents are advised to donate reusable clothing to charity shops and furniture to the Barnet Furniture Centre, 4 Queens Parade, N11 3FY.
  • Check if your local supermarket is accepting donations of any unwanted food, or if there are any local Food Banks that you could donate to.
