Best times to visit
We recommend trying to plan your visit around quiet times at the recycling centres if possible - weekdays between 8-10am and 3-5pm are less busy than weekends and the middle of the day.
If you need help unloading your vehicle, please alert a member of staff, either verbally or by sounding your vehicle horn.
Using a van or trailer
If you are using a van or trailer to dispose of your waste you will need to apply for a free e-permit. If you are using a car you do not need to apply for a permit.
The waste recycling centres accept a wide range of household recyclables and waste for no charge. Non-household waste is accepted for a small charge. Payment can be made by cash or card. See the price list on our charging for non-household waste.
Waste from a commercial premises or business cannot be accepted at any of our sites except Redbridge household waste recycling centre
We are working with FCC Environment who manage Dix Pit recycling centre to trial a reuse scheme, to reduce waste going for disposal and keeping things in use for longer. If you have brought something to the site which could be given a new home please speak to a member of staff.
Reusable items, such as furniture, musical instruments, toys and household goods are then taken to an auction house by FCC Environment. No items are sold on site. Please help us to save more items from being thrown away.
