Small amounts of DIY waste and building materials can be taken to one of north London's reuse and recycling centres (RRC) where you can recycle hardcore material such as rubble, concrete and soil. Each north London household can take DIY waste capable of being fitted into two 50 litre bags, four times in any four week period. This includes concrete, brick, stones, pebbles, sand and gravel. Commercial building waste cannot be taken to an RRC. For larger projects we advise hiring a skip, most skip providers will usually sort and recycle materials for you.

You can also take reusable DIY waste to one of our DIY reuse points (opens in a new window) at South Access Road Reuse and Recycling Centre in Waltham Forest or Summers Lane Reuse and Recycling Centre in Barnet.
