Recycling centres

Hackney residents can use any of these waste and recycling centres (also known as tips or dumps). You can take a range of household waste items to the sites, including unusable furniture, garden waste, electrical appliances, scrap metal and textiles.

Please note that not all centres accept vans or cars with a trailer. For sites that do accept vans and cars with a trailer you must book 24 hours in advance.

Each site has a limit for of 20 vans per day. Residents are permitted to a maximum of 5 visits with a van or car with a trailer per financial year (1 April – 31 March).

Please check the website of the centre you want to use for opening hours and to see any restrictions on what you can bring. For more information see North London Waste Authority.
