Key workers from Veolia take to the roads every week to ensure bins are collected and residents’ health and safety is protected.

Camden Council’s environment lead Adam Harrison said: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to our recycling and waste collection and cleaning teams who are working to keep Camden clean and safe.

“We have seen Camden’s community spirit shine through and the resilient response of our key workers and residents makes a difference.”

Veolia has launched a Street Smiles campaign asking people to place a picture of a smiling sun in their window to recognise bin collectors’ vital work.
