*The site is occasionally closed for short periods of time during operational hours to allow containers to be moved or changed.
Please allow enough time to unload your rubbish and recycling before our site closes. If you arrive 10 minutes before closing time with lots of items to unload, you will not be allowed in.
End of COVID pre-booking system at reuse and recycling centres
From Monday 7 November, you no longer need to book in advance if you want to visit this reuse and recycling centre by car, bicycle or on foot. You can simply arrive at the site during opening hours. Read more about the decision to end the COVID pre-booking system at RRCs.
Restrictions on hardcore, rubble, soil and stones
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
Plan a visit
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, we have created a list of some local facilities that do accept trade waste. 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.
