Soil and stones




Soil can be taken to any of north London's reuse and recycling centres (RRC) (opens in a new window), but not Barrowell Green in Enfield.

Each north London household can take up to six standard rubble sacks of soil to an RRC each month. This includes concrete stones, pebbles, soil, sand and gravel. A standard rubble sack is 51cm by 76cm (20 inches by 30 inches) or equivalent. 

Please note, we are not currently able to recycle soil so it would need to go in the general waste container, once at the RRC. Hardcore and rubble (opens in new window) can still be recycled in a separate bin.

If you have a large quantity of hardcore material, consider hiring a skip. You can check whether a company is legally allowed to carry waste on the Public Register of Waste Carriers (opens in a new window).
