Event Description

Bring your unwanted Green Box to "The Gardens Community Garden (GRA)" and get it recycled (How green is that ??)

The recycling service for street level properties is changing, whereby green recycling boxes are being replaced with the new wheelie bins. The changes are designed to make it easier for us all to recycle more, whilst reducing our carbon emissions.

Once the service changes over you will no longer be able to use your green box for recycling, due to operational reasons. However you can use it for other uses i.e. planters storage bin etc. 

If you don't want your Green Box anymore, you can drop them off from Sat 16th June to Sunday 15th July - 9am to 7pm at The Gardens Community Garden (GRA) Doncaster Gardens off Stanhope Gardens N4 1HX.

Don't bring your box before then as you will still need to use your recycling bin up until Fri 15th June for your last collection, switch over is the week starting from Monday 25th June

Bring your unwanted Green Boxes to us and we will help them be recycled. 

This project has come about as the GRA recognised that due to the non collection of the Green Box at its life end many people will have no means of disposing of there Green Box.

You can also dispose of you boxes at the Hornsey & Tottenham Recycling centres.

This initiative is in partnership with The Gardens Residents Assoc (GRA) -The Ladder Community Safety Partnership (LCSP) - Haringey Council & Veolia Environmental Services.

Will it be possible to collect green boxes from this point?  I want some for raised beds, and our side of the borough isn't switching to bins till late this year.

Hi Pamish
I'm sure you will appreciate our scheme has just started and never been done before in Haringey.
I have no idea how many boxes will be donated at the moment there are more people requesting boxes that offering them at the moment.
Come back to me again when the scheme is nearing its end in mid July and I will
have a better idea of numbers and demand for redistribution. Hope this helps?

I should be encouraged that they will be re-used not junked. Will keep watching.

Hi Pamish - we have collected 88 green boxes and at the next garden maintenance morning which will be Sat 4th Aug 11am to 1pm. You can pop down and collect as many as you like - if you cant make this date and time, email me at andyn.kaza@virgin.net to organise a collection.
