Before you visit one of our Household Waste Recycling Centres, take a minute to sort your mixed rubbish and recycling.  Should you arrive on-site and have a bag of mixed rubbish which contains recycling, a member of the team at the centre will let you know where each of the items should be placed and request that you separate it to maximise recycling.

Visiting a recycling centre

Read what to expect when you visit including charges and changes to site rules.

Household waste

The waste recycling centres accept a wide range of household recyclables and waste free of charge.

However, there is a small charge for non-household waste (DIY). All payments should be made by electronic means, all of our sites accept contactless payments and Apple/Samsung Pay etc. See the price list on our charging for non-household waste (DIY) page.

Commercial and trade waste

We cannot accept waste from commercial premises or businesses at any of our sites except the Redbridge household waste recycling centre.

Reuse scheme

This scheme is currently on hold due to COVID-19. Please check back for any updates.

Prior to COVID-19, we were working with FCC Environment, who manage the Dix Pit recycling centre, to trial a reuse scheme to reduce waste going for disposal and keeping things in use for longer.

This was saving reusable items, such as furniture, musical instruments, toys and household goods which were then taken to an auction house by FCC Environment. No items were sold on-site.
