Winter weather updates

In the event of snow and ice in Camden, this page will provide daily updates on gritting and any issues or changes to services caused by the weather. Information for borough staff may also be included.


The cold snap continues and our gritters have been out in Camden.

We have been gritting main roads, bus routes and areas around transport hubs, hospitals and emergency services and will again this evening.

Recycling and rubbish collections

Our crews are undertaking recycling and rubbish collections as usual. However, due to the weather conditions some collections may have been missed.

If this affects you, please leave your bins out for collection where possible and our crews will attempt to collect them when it is safe to do so.

You can read more information about recycling and rubbish collections here.

Help for people rough sleeping

Camden Routes off The Street (RTS) objective is to ensure that all rough sleepers in the borough receive an offer, which means they no longer have to sleep rough and are able to rebuild their lives away from the street.

During freezing conditions, Camden operates a severe weather protocol, which provides additional temporary beds.

This winter we are working with our partners to ensure that nobody sleeps on the street in freezing conditions and that the accommodation provided is safe for them to use.

If you see someone sleeping rough please let us know via the Streetsafe app or by phone on 020 7846 3535 to help us find them and offer support.

To download the app go to or search 'Camden safer streets'
