HCRA is once again offering residents the chance to get rid of unwanted junk with the return of its popular “dump run” event.

A team of volunteers will be collecting rubbish and ferrying it to the dump on Saturday, April 23.

The event, which is supported by Harrow Council, is a chance to have a good old clearout and dispose of bulky items that can be hard to get rid of if you don’t have your own transport.

The service is free although we will be collecting donations towards the hire of a tipper truck as well as annual subscriptions to HCRA, which cost just £3 per household per year.

Residents who wish to get rid of any junk are asked to leave it outside their properties – but NOT on the pavement – the night before the event or first thing in the morning.

We will be collecting rubbish between 9.30am and 3pm.

Please label items to be dumped and ensure any items you DON’T want us to take are also clearly labelled.

We are keen to recruit people to help out on the day, even just for a short time. If you are able to join in then the team will be meeting at 9am in Woodlands Road.

We cannot take commercial waste, rubble, car tyres, batteries, oil or hazardous materials.

If you have a particularly large or awkward item you want to dispose of then please call or message Sonia Moore in advance on 07516 402025 to see if we can help.
