Reuse and Recycling Centre

You can dispose of your household recycling and rubbish at the Reuse and Recycling Centre (RRC).

Hornsey Street Reuse and Recycling Centre is open from 9am-4pm daily. Advance booking is essential. If you are experiencing issues or need help to make your booking, please call LondonEnergy Ltd: 07483 077 859 Monday to Friday between 8.30am and 4.30pm.

The service allows people to dispose of household or garden waste items.

Strict social distancing measures are in place to ensure the safety of residents and staff who will not be available to help you with unloading. Please make sure you can carry your items by yourself or with one other person. If you have a disability, and are able to show proof of that disability, please notify a member of staff who will help you on site.

For more information visit the North London Waste Authority website

If you don’t have access to a car or can’t find the time to visit the centre you can get help from TipTapp. Just set the price you are willing to pay and within minutes you will be offered times for same or next day removal.

You can continue to recycle lots of items in your normal household collection service and you can find your nearest alternative reuse and recycling centre on the NLWA's website.
