It is always very irritating to see large items dumped on the pavements of Belsize in the vain hope or misguided expectation that they will be collected by Veolia with ordinary waste on bin day. That does not happen, of course.
Veolia can collect large items that do not fit in your bin, including beds or mattresses, broken furniture like sofas or chairs, and extra bags of rubbish. To book a collection, you should contact Veolia on 020 3567 8105. Help to move items for collection to the outside edge of your property can be provided by Camden’s handyperson service (charges apply). Large electrical items can be collected for free by Clearabee, or also by Veolia for a separate charge. You are entitled to two free collections a year if you are a Camden resident and are aged 65 and over, or receive 100% Council Tax Support. You should email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about the service. Bulky waste, including reusable furniture and large items that do not fit in your bin, can still be taken to Regis Road reuse and recycling centre in Kentish Town.
The Love Clean Streets app can be used to report street cleaning issues, such as illegally dumped rubbish, dog mess, graffiti and litter, using your smartphone. You can report fly-tipping online through the Love Clean Streets web page (camden.lovecleanstreets.com/help) or by calling Veolia on 020 3567 8105.
