Who we are

The East London Waste Authority (ELWA) was established on 1 January 1986 as a Statutory Waste Disposal Authority (WDA), responsible for the disposal of waste collected by the London Boroughs of Barking & Dagenham, Havering, Newham and Redbridge.

Covid-19

The Reuse & Recycling Centres at Chigwell Road, Frizlands Lane, Gerpins Lane and Jenkins Lane are closed to the public and local businesses until further notice, following the Prime Minister’s instructions of 23 March 2020 regarding everyone staying at home and not travelling unless it is absolutely essential.  The information on this website will be updated as soon as possible when this situation changes.
