Residents reminded to help keep streets clean during Sukkot

Thousands of residents are celebrating the Jewish festival of Sukkot from 8 - 15 October.

The council is reminding the community of the need to still keep the streets clean and unobstructed during this time.

Residents taking part in the festival should build sukkahs (a temporary hut constructed for useduring Sukkot) on their own land and dismantle them afterwards. It is against the law to build structures on public streets or pavements.

Disposing of waste after the festival

After the sukkahs have been dismantled, the leaves, sticks and small branches from their roofs can be put into garden waste bins to be collected for free by the council.

For larger items which do not fit in bins or rubbish bags – such as the sides of the sukkah – book a collection in advance or call 020 8356 6688.

Bulky household waste can also be taken to these waste and recycling centres:

  • Islington - 40 Hornsey Street, N7 8HU
  • Tottenham - Park View Road, N17 9AY
  • Wood Green - Western Road, N22 6UG
  • Waltham Forest - South Access Road, E17 8BS
  • Leyton - Gateway Road, E10 5BY
