Materials accepted

Soil and rubble policy

Each north London household can take up to six standard rubble sacks of soil and six standard rubble sacks of rubble to Summers Lane RRC each month. A standard rubble sack is a 20" by 30" (51cm by 76cm) sack or equivalent.

Bicycle reuse scheme operating at this RRC

We currently have a bicycle reuse scheme in operation with Recycle your Cycle. Recycle your Cycle works with the UK prison service to provide training in the refurbishment of bicycles. Bicycles are then sold on through charity shops across the country (and also in the Reuse Shop Second Time Around).

Please note that any of the bicycles set aside at the RRCs which are not suitable for reuse are recycled.

 

Second Time Around Reuse Shop

A reuse shop is located within this site selling a range of items which could include furniture, sports equipment, clothes and other household items. The items for sale have been donated to Second Time Around for reuse by residents or collected from other Reuse and Recycling Centres managed by North London Waste Authority in the area and would have otherwise been thrown away. The RRCs and Second Time Around are operated by LondonWaste Ltd.

Donate items to the shop

If you have any items that you plan on taking to your local RRC, consider if they could be used by another individual or whether someone else might be interested in upcycling them into new products. If so and you are visiting the Kings Road RRC, take your item(s) into the shop instead of placing them in one of the recycling containers.
