WHAT WE DO Household waste and recycling centres
You can also take your recycling, refuse or items for re-use to centres and neighbourhood sites across the borough. We run the two main household waste and recycling centres in the borough, one in Greenford and one in Acton. They provide an alternative place for you to recycle items and dispose of waste responsibly.
A wide range of materials and household waste can be recycled at these centres. They are open all year round except for Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
The centres can be found in:
Stirling Road W3 8DJ
Greenford Road UB6 9AP
Abbey Road NW10 7TJ
Neighbourhood recycling sites
We manage a network of neighbourhood recycling sites that can be found across the borough.
You can use a simple search tool to find out where your nearest neighbourhood recycling site is:
These sites provide a handy and convenient place to dispose of less common recycling items – such as shoes, clothes and textiles, and everyday electrical equipment such as kettles or toasters.
What can I take?
You can dispose of a whole range of items at the sites, including wood, mattresses, small electrical items, garden waste and larger appliances such as televisions, fridges and freezers. Please note, not all these items are accepted at Acton.
Please note, we do not accept any form of asbestos at the Greenford or Acton sites.
