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 8am to 8pm daily (except Sunday, from 8.30am to 8pm). You can dispose of household or garden waste items at the centre that you can't put in normal household recycling.

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.
