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 on the day, and 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, 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.
