Trade Waste 
Trade (commercial) waste is not accepted at any of our RRCs, however there are some local facilities that do accept trade waste, which you can find a
list of here
Please note that this list has been provided in good faith, but should not be taken as exhaustive or as an endorsement of the companies listed.

Furniture reuse
Furniture provided at this RRC goes to the
Second Time Around reuse shop, located within the Kings Road Reuse and Recycling Centre, Waltham Forest, where they are inspected and safety checked. Items in the shop are priced affordably offering residents the opportunity to get an item they need or want for a fraction of the cost they would do if purchased new.

Furniture such as upholstered furniture without a fire label, with missing parts, damage that may make the item unsafe or which fail the quality inspection for any other reason will not be accepted at the shop, but will be sent for recycling where possible.

Bicycle reuse scheme operating at this RRC
We currently have a bicycle reuse scheme in operation with
Recycle your Cycle.  Recycle your Cycle work with the UK prison service to provide training in the refurbishment of bicycles. Bicycles are then sold on through charity shops across the country (and also in the Reuse Shop Second Time Around). 

Please note that any bicycles set aside at the RRC's which are not suitable for reuse are recycled.
