Starting Monday 18th the tip will open for essential use only!

The Recycling centre opens on Monday 18 May with each day allocated to a Harrow postcode

From Monday, you’ll be able to use the recycling centre on Forward Drive but you must only visit the tip if it is not possible to manage your waste through collections. We are urging everyone to utilise their recycling, food and general waste and only use the tip if it absolutely essential.

Open from 8am to 6pm, access to tip is by post code only which is allocated to each day. You will be turned away if you come on any other day. These are temporary measures that will be reviewed in the coming weeks. The last entry to the tip is 5.30.

Please sort your waste before you come (i.e. into household, garden, recycling). We’ll have a guide available shortly on what you can and can’t bring to the site.

Only cars will be allowed for the current time and only one person will be allowed to out their car to dispose of waste – this is to keep social distancing.
