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.
A new booking system has been introduced for cars to minimise queuing time but queues are still expected. Residents travelling to Hornsey Street RRC on foot or bike can take the material to the pedestrian drop-off point at the Hornsey Street depot entrance, without booking in advance.
