Recycle right for Barnet

 In Barnet, we want to ensure that only the right items are collected and sent for recycling.

Incorrect items placed in recycling bins is called ‘contamination’. Contamination can affect the quality of the recycling collected and the processes at the recycling facility.

Food packaging must be clean and free from food. Please note that we cannot recycle items containing food residue.
