Haringey Waste Collection Services

With hundreds of businesses operating in Haringey, ensuring all of the waste created in the area is properly disposed of is no walk in the park. Fortunately, Bywaters has the expert knowledge and specialised equipment to safely and securely sort and recycle various types of rubbish — we cater to businesses of all sizes, in almost any sector. One of our key missions is to develop a greener future for society with the help of our Green Gurus who offer additional guidance and create bespoke waste management strategies for companies.

Haringey Waste Disposal

In Haringey, we can sort many different materials, including dry mixed items, glass, coffee grounds, cardboard, and food. As we’re dedicated to ensuring sending zero waste to landfill, Bywaters can efficiently manage any kind of waste your business generates.

Located at our Lea Riverside headquarters in Bow, East London, we house the city’s largest indoor Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), which is where we transport your commercial waste to. Running on solar power, its state-of-the-art technology sorts mixed waste into segregated streams, which are then bulked and sent off for recycling. 

Our other facility located at Gateway Road specialises in construction and demolition waste, so if your restaurant or office complex is undergoing a refurbishment, for example, we can dispose of the rubbish. This includes bulky waste items such as bricks and metal, that are either diverted to energy recovery or recycling. We also offer a small tipping service for loads up to 500kg.

Haringey Rubbish Collection

Arranged at a convenient time for your business schedule, Bywaters’ Haringey waste collection service is powered by our sustainable fleet of either fully electric or ULEZ compliant Euro 6 vehicles. Your waste is transported to one to one of our facilities, where it’s reused, recycled or recovered.

We’ll send you a variety of recycling bins and containers, depending on your specific business needs, and tailor waste collection to your requirements. Once in our hands, we make sure zero waste is sent to landfill, helping your company reduce its carbon footprint and improve its sustainability.

Haringey: Short Guide

The London borough of Haringey is located in North London, covering an area of 11 miles, including Portis Green (in part), Muswell Hill, Highgate (in part), Crouch End, Bowes Park (in part), Hornsey, Wood Green, Harringay, West Green, and Tottenham. It’s home to some top London landmarks, such as Alexandra Palace, Bruce Castle and Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.

The History of Haringey

Haringey once sat at the edge of a large glacial mass that reached as far south as Muswell Hill, and there is strong evidence of Stone Age and Bronze Age activity in the area. The name ‘Haringey’ originates from the medieval place name ‘Haringeie’ or ‘Haringesheye’, which translates to ‘Enclosure in the Gray Wood’.

It remained mostly rural up until the 18th century when large country houses close to London grew in popularity. From the 19th century, the arrival of railway and tram systems led to rapid urbanisation, eventually resulting in the official London borough of Haringey being created in 1965. This combined the previous municipalities of Hornsey, Wood Green and Tottenham.

A bustling borough

Boasting a huge population of over 280,000 people, Haringey is incredibly young and diverse — 38% of residents are from BAME groups and over 180 languages are spoken. It’s largely a residential area with many popular green spaces, such as Finsbury Park, Highgate Wood and Queen’s Wood.

More than 13,000 businesses were registered in Haringey in 2018. From light engineering and metal goods manufacturing, to furniture, clothing and footwear, the borough houses many industries. The public sector is the biggest employer in Haringey, though there are also plenty of small businesses, with 93% of companies hiring fewer than nine people.

Landmarks and culture

Alexandra Palace (also called Ally Pally), an arts and entertainment complex, is located within the borough and has seen the likes of Queen, The Stone Roses, and Blur perform at the venue. It has a rich and fascinating history, having burned down in a fire back in 1873 before being rebuilt to feature a concert hall, theatre, circus and even a boating lake.

Visitors can discover the history of Haringey at the Bruce Castle Museum, which is a Grade I listed manor house. There’s also the Arthouse Cinema in Crouch End — a cultural hub for all ages. Every football season, both local residents and thousands of tourists flock to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to watch the latest match, and sporting occasions like these typically generate a lot of waste. At Bywaters, we can provide the events industry with the right waste management solutions to ensure zero waste goes to landfill.
