Contaminated bins

Putting the wrong item in your rubbish or recycling bins can contaminate them, which means they will not be collected.

If your bin has the wrong things in, it will not be collected because it could contaminate everything in the bin truck.

The crew will log a report and tag the bin. You will need to empty the contents so that your bin can be collected next time.

You can take rubbish or recycling to the Haringey reuse and recycling centre.

For more information on what to put in your bins see types of bin. If you would like more help or advice we can arrange for an officer to visit you. Contact Veolia if you want advice.
