Hornsey Street is an NLWA managed site. For telephone enquiries about booking a visit, call 020 8803 1322.
Please note – The site is occasionally closed for short periods of time during operational hours to allow containers to be moved or changed.
On Sunday 29 November there will be no public access to the Reuse and Recycling Centre via Hornsey Street. This is to make way for a barrier installation at the site entrance. You will need to access the site via Caledonian Road/Cottage road.
Restrictions are in place at all reuse and recycling centres to ensure social distancing guidelines can be adhered to and to make sure that residents are able to dispose of their waste safely. Visit our COVID-19 information page for more information.
Restrictions on hardcore and rubble
Each North London household can take up to six standard rubble sacks of soil/rubble to an RRC each month. This includes concrete, brick, stones, pebbles, soil, sand and gravel. A standard rubble sack is 51cm by 76cm (20 inches by 30 inches) or equivalent.
Height barrier restriction: 1.9m
Book a visit
To book a visit for a car, you need to book a time slot to visit an RRC. You can book a slot up to two weeks ahead. Read more about visiting an RRC by car, bike or foot on our Making a Car, Bike or Pedestrian Booking page.
Pedestrian access: Residents bringing waste on foot or by bike to Hornsey Street RRC should take the material to the pedestrian drop-off point at the Hornsey Street depot entrance. Please note that this drop-off point is only in operation during the opening hours stated above. Asbestos or other hazardous material will not be accepted at the drop-off point.
Alternatively, pedestrians may use any public mixed recycling points (which take paper, glass, cans, plastic bottles and cardboard) including those on the corner of Caledonian Road and Cottage Road, opposite Caledonian Road tube station.
Trade (commercial) waste is not accepted at any of our RRCs. However, there are some local facilities that do accept trade waste, which you can find a list of here. Please note that this list has been provided in good faith, but should not be taken as exhaustive or as an endorsement of the companies listed.
