Frequently asked questions:
Is trade/business waste accepted?
Under the terms of our Environmental Permit we do not accept any form of trade or business waste. If we suspect that you are bringing trade waste to our site we will investigate you and you may be liable for prosecution.
If I accompany my builder to the site, with my building waste, will you let me in?
No, the waste remains trade waste.
I run my business from home, not from commercial premises, does this mean my waste is trade?
Yes, the waste has been generated as a result of business activities, and not from the activities of the household.
I’m a landlord, can I dispose of waste from my rental properties?
No, waste arising from rental properties is classed as trade waste. Any waste from maintenance of the property including construction and demolition waste, furniture from furnished properties, and bulky items for disposal on change of tenancy, must be disposed of as trade waste.
I have a trailer, can I use it to take my waste to the HWRC?
Trailers are permitted in the HWRCs, but require booking in 24 hours in advance as per the van procedure. This applies for trailers of all sizes.
Businesses are not permitted to use the Household Waste Recycling Centre. Traders have a Duty of Care under Section 34 of the Environmental Protection Act, 1990, to dispose of their waste and recycling in a legal and proper manner. Businesses should contact the Environment Agency for further information.

Asbestos, solvents and pesticides will not be accepted. The London Borough of Haringey operates a hazardous waste collection and disposal services in partnerhip with the City of London for Haringey residents. The service helps you deal with your household waste responsibly and legally.
The contract allows for the removal and disposal of a variety of hazardous wastes such as chemicals, solvents and poisons. 'Hazardous waste' is a material that poses potential threats to public health or the environment. It may be flammable, corrosive of toxic. You should not handle hazardous waste if you are not sure what it is.
If you would like to arrange a collection of these items please call the Corporation of London on 020 7606 3030.
This service is free, but is restricted to 3 times a year per Haringey household.
Gas cylinders and car tyres cannot be accepted at the Household Waste Recycling Centres but can be collected from your home at no cost. To arrange a collection contact the Veolia Haringey Contact Centre:
Tel: 020 8885 7700
Japanese Knotweed cannot be accepted at the Household Waste Recycling Centres, and residents are asked to ensure that they do not put any of this plant material into the garden waste skips. Free collections of Japanese Knotweed for safe disposal are available - please see the Japanese Knotweed page for more information.
Other ways to get rid of unwanted items
The Household Waste Recycling Centres have skips and containers for a wide range of items, to be passed on to other organisations to use or sent for recycling into new products.
However, there are other ways to get rid of unwanted items so that they can be reused or recycled, including materials that can only be put into the general waste skip if they are taken to the Household Waste Recycling Centres.
Other places to take materials for reuse or recycling
Many materials can be recycled using collection services directly from your home, and the NLWA and its partners have also provided recycling banks for additional materials around the borough.
Sourcing raw materials
The council is unfortunately not able to allow residents, businesses or other groups to take materials away from the Household Waste Recycling Centres.
If you are looking for a source of raw materials for an art project then the best route is often to make an arrangement with a school, community centre or business which may be able to collect the items you need separately.
If you run a business in the materials or recycling industry then please be aware that the council has contracts in place for the collection and treatment of all of the material collected at the Household Waste Recycling Centres, and will therefore not be able to enter into a new contract with your organisation.
