Bin Collections

Harrow’s bin collection schedule (day and bin-colour) can be found here at Harrow Council’s website.  Alternatively, if you’ve left your bin out and it hasn’t been collected, you can report that here.

If you have a brown kitchen-caddy, you can use the biodegradable bags available from Harrow libraries.  Harrow recommend that you only use their branded bags, as the contracted Refuse Collection teams are unable to tell the difference between unbranded biodegradable bags and normal plastic bags.  These are available for £4.50 for a roll of 50 bags.
