Local waste and recycling centres

Recycle info


There are three household waste and recycling centres in Waltham Forest:

Each site has different rules about what you can take, as well as different opening hours and days. Please check our web pages for details before you make a journey. 

Items that are suitable to be used by someone else can be taken to the Second Time Around shop at the Kings Road Reuse and Recycling Centre, Chingford.

Vans are permitted access into the South Access Household Waste and Recycling Centre only.

Residents coming by van (a van is defined as a vehicle with no rear windows or no rear seats), pick-up or car with a trailer (over four foot in length) must make an appointment to visit South Access Road at least 24 hours in advance booking online on the London Energy website, or by calling 020 8509 3664. 

You will need to take proof of residency and identification on the day of your booking to prove you are a resident of the borough. Each Waltham Forest household can take a van to South Access Household Waste and Recycling Centre up to five times a year (1 April to 31 March).
