Entry requirements

You must bring proof of identity when you visit a Reuse and Recycling Centre – either a driving license with current address or your current council tax bill (e-bills shown on an electronic device are acceptable). If you do not bring valid proof of identification, charges may apply.

All residents living in the boroughs of Barking & Dagenham, Havering, Newham and Redbridge are entitled to use any of the four Reuse and Recycling Centres in the East London Waste Authority to dispose of household waste. Please use the Reuse and Recycling Centre within your borough to dispose of restricted waste (any waste generated through renovation or DIY works), having sought authorisation from the council first.

Charges will apply for all commercial waste.
