Statement on Reuse and Recycling Centres - 5 November 2020

Following the Government announcement that England will enter a second ‘lockdown’ from Thursday 5 November, reuse and recycling centres (RRCs) managed by North London Waste Authority (NLWA) will remain open. This is line with Government guidance that waste and recycling centres can remain open.

Residents must continue to book a slot to visit any of NLWA’s RRCs, whether by foot, bicycle or in a car. This is to minimise queues around sites and ensure social distancing measures can be managed effectively on-site. Residents who want to visit an RRC in a van must make a booking here.

There will be no change to the range of materials accepted at our reuse and recycling centres during this time.

Some additional precautionary measures have been introduced, including a reduction in the number of available booking slots. This is to ensure effective social distancing can be maintained on site, and for the safety and wellbeing of staff and visitors.

These additional measures may mean that residents have to wait before being able to enter the site. NLWA is asking site visitors to be please be patient during this time, and to respect social distancing and safety measures, including by wearing a face covering on all sites.

In line with the closure of all non-essential shops during the lockdown, the Second Time Around reuse shop at King’s Road RRC will be closed.
