Gerpins Lane RRC
The Gerpins Lane Reuse and Recycling Centre is open. Before visiting, please make sure you have read the information below, with more detailed information available on this page. There may be long queues, so you should arrive well before closing time.
Do not visit an RRC if you are showing symptoms of Covid-19
Bring a recent Council Tax statement or your driving licence (registered to an address in Barking and Dagenham, Havering, Newham or Redbridge) as proof of residence
Social distancing measures will be in effect at the RRCs. Please keep your distance from all other visitors and site staff
Assistance to unload vehicles will not be available, so please bring someone with you to help if you require it
No more than 2 people may get out of each vehicle, and children must remain inside vehicles at all times
Wear gloves, bring hand sanitiser, avoid touching your face, and wash your hands thoroughly for 20 seconds as soon as you get home
Please note that we are now able to accept larger vans and twin axle trailers carrying Household Waste at the Jenkins Lane and Frizlands Lane RRCs only. Light commercial-type vehicles (under 3,500kg maximum permissible mass) and single axle trailers are permitted at the Chigwell Road and Gerpins Lane RRCs if they are carrying household waste, or restricted household waste with authorisation from the resident’s Local Authority. If driving a van, you are asked to bring the vehicle’s V5C logbook to prove it is below this weight threshold and may be re-directed to the Jenkins Lane site if this is not the case.
No Luton Vans, flat bed vehicles, vans with tail lifts or tippers of any size are permitted to access any site at this time.
All vehicles remain subject to checks for proof of address within the ELWA region and for restricted/commercial waste. Please be aware that the Jenkins Lane RRC is busiest between 12pm and 1pm on weekdays, so please avoid visiting at that time if possible.
Commercial Waste is not currently permitted at this site.
Please make sure you arrive well before these closing times as there may be long queues. If a queue will prevent you accessing before the site’s closing time, you will be advised to use an alternative site or try again another day.
