Council says recycling will improve for Highgate residents

Recycling services will improve for thousands more residents when Haringey Council's new waste collections move eastwards next week.
From 18 June services to affected households will include the weekly collection of food and gardening waste as well as dry recyclable materials.
There is also a free bulky waste collection for items that can be reused or recycled and a new 240 litre wheelie bin so residents can recycle more on the doorstep.
To make the recycling of unused food easier, the council is also supplying free compostable bags to line kitchen caddies for six months.
Streets in Crouch End, Hornsey, Bounds Green, Noel Park and Woodside wards, as well as the whole of Stroud Green and West Green and most of Harringay and Bruce Grove and parts of St Ann's, White Hart Lane and Tottenham Green wards are the beneficiaries of the improved service.
Given the council is collecting the majority of waste every week it means non-recyclables will be picked up every other week.
A recycling guide has been issued to all households receiving the new service giving full details of how to recycle.
Bin collection dates remain the same.
