The number of waste and recycling bags collected after Christmas are normally double that of a normal week and consequently the collection lorries need to go to be emptied more often. This can unfortunately lead the the crews running out of time and missing some roads.

If you have not had your bags collected by 5pm on the day it is due, your can check whether your road is listed as having been missed via the Roads with missed waste collections webpage. If your location is not on the list, you should report it to Havering Council via their Report a missed collection page or by calling 01708 432 563.

Anyone whose collection has been missed should leave their bags out again the next morning by 7am.

*** Please remember that the day of your collection may not have returned to normal yet. Please see the rearranged dates below. ***
