What we collect
We collect the following:
- mixed recycling
We also provide posters and leaflets about recycling properly for anyone living or staying in Islington, such as in rented accommodation.
When we collect it
If you live in a flat above a shop you will receive daily time-banded recycling and rubbish collections. This means you must put your recycling and rubbish out for collection at specific times of the day to keep our main roads clear of rubbish.
What we provide
Residents who live above shops can collect recycling bags from libraries and other collection points. Find out where you can collect recycling bags from.
Food waste recycling pilot for flats above shops
We want to help all our residents to recycle food waste and are trialling a food waste recycling service for a section of Holloway Road between Holloway Road and Highbury and Islington tube stations. As part of the trial we have placed communal food waste bins at intervals along Holloway Road, with residents provided with food waste caddies and liners. If you live in a flat above a shop or business in this area and would like a kitchen waste caddy to recycle your food waste, please email email@example.com.
Report a missed collection
The quickest, easiest way to report a missed collection is through your My Islington account, or by downloading the Love Clean Streets app.

The quickest and easiest way to request recycling containers is by logging into or signing up for a My eAccount. You can get recycling bags and food waste liners for households from local libraries.
