Hornsey Street is an NLWA managed site.
Please note – The site is occasionally closed for short periods of time during operational hours to allow containers to be moved or changed.
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 RRCs 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
Van and trailer policy
For visits in a van, please make a booking here at least 24 hours in advance of your visit. Proof of residency, such as a utility bill is required for van bookings
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.
Residents wishing to bring waste 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.
