Camden Council leader quits in midst of Labour's bin chaos

Labour’s Council Leader, Sarah Hayward, has quit while confusion grows as Camden cuts rubbish collections to once a fortnight.

Labour say it’s just “teething troubles” & admit “it looks as if we are not coping” as nearly one in ten affected households call Camden Council in just one day.

In 2014, Camden Labour’s manifesto promised ‘weekly recycling and waste collections for all’.  But the Labour-controlled Council have broken this commitment and have cut collections.

Camden Conservatives have opposed this from day one - and proposed a costed alternative that would save core services like bin collections.  We’ll keep fighting to reverse this cut, and will propose another costed plan next year to bring back weekly collections.

But we’re working to ensure you get the support and advice you need to adjust to the changes: whether you’ve received the wrong bin, a collection’s been missed, you need weekly collections to deal with nappies or other products, or you need help with anything else.

Contact us on and your local team will be happy to help.
