Garden and bulky waste services suspended, orange sacks and Gerpins Lane closed

Collections, and the renewal of contracts for garden waste bins and compostable sacks, has stopped. We advise you to home compost as much of your green garden waste as you can. We will not be collecting bulky waste until further notice and the Reuse and Recycling Centres at Gerpins Lane is closed. Running out of orange sacks? Put your recycling in a bag that is either clear or as see-through as possible, and label it as recycling. Go to our service disruption page for details

Coronavirus waste disposal advice

Tissues, disposable gloves and other related items used by anyone with suspected COVID-19 and those cleaning up afterwards, should be double bagged, then stored securely for 72 hours before being thrown away inside your usual black sack waste. You should not put this waste out with your usual rubbish for weekly collections until negative test results are known or the waste has been stored for at least 72 hours. Cleaning advice from GOV.UK

Recycling and bottle banks

Report overflowing and request new recycling and bottle banks

The recycling banks are regularly emptied, if you notice that a bank is full or overflowing please report it.

We will then arrange with the bank site owners for them to be emptied.

You can also request a new recycling and bottle bank if you think there is a location that needs one, or report a damaged bank.

You will need a My Havering portal account to contact us about recycling and bottle banks.
