Second phase of bin changes to hit Haringey on Monday
The controversial changes to bin collections in Haringey will affect thousands more people in the borough as from Monday.
The changes, which include a fortnightly – rather than a weekly – collection of household rubbish, will now affect the whole of Crouch End, Hornsey, Bounds Green Noel Park, Woodside, Stroud Green and West Green.
Previously, only some streets in each area had seen the changes which were waived through in March.
People living in Harringay and Bruce Grove as well as parts of St Ann’s, White Hart Lane and Tottenham Green will also notice the cut to their rubbish collections.
The scheme has attracted criticism over the last two months from people who are concerned the cut to bin collections is leaving the borough looking untidy.
However, the changes, which are set to save the council £900,000 a year, have been introduced to encourage more people to recycle in the borough.
Recycling will continue to be collected once a week, and the small green recycling boxes will also be replaced by larger 240 litre recycling wheelie bins. Food and garden waste will also be collected weekly.
