Timed collections

We want residents to be proud to live in Newham and for visitors to come back to our borough.

We have timed waste collections on some of our main streets, so we can make sure that they are and look cleaner.

How do timed waste collections work?

Timed collections only affect certain streets.
If you normally put rubbish bags and bins, or any recycling, on these streets for collection, you need to do it at set times and on set days.
If you live in a flat above a shop you must put your rubbish bags on the pavement of the main road for collection at the set times. Do not leave any rubbish on side streets or in alleyways.
If you use a bin which is always stored on your property – that is if you do not normally put it on the road for collection – timed collections do not affect you. You can just use your bin as normal.

Why have timed waste collections?

Timed waste collections mean:
  • bags and bins stay on the main roads waiting for collection for less time, keeping our streets cleaner
  • fewer bags and bins in the way, make it easier for people to get through the streets.

If you miss a timed waste collection

If you miss the time to put out your rubbish we will not collect it. You must store it inside your premises until the next set day and time. If you have a bin and you don’t have space for it inside your property, keep it as close to the front of your property as possible.

Timed collections do not affect customers who use bins which are permanently stored on their property, that is if they do not put their bin on the street for collection.
You must check that your customers know that they will need to put their bags and bins out on the street for you to collect at the set times on their collection days.
If you do not collect your customers' waste during the times set out above, they may face a fine for leaving their waste on the street.
Remember, we all need to work together to make sure that Newham's streets are cleaner.
