You are encouraged to book ahead to visit Abbey Road Reuse & Recycling Centre to avoid the queue. You will be able to book into a slot if you turn up without a prior booking but please note that you may experience some delays. Alternatively, you can utilise the existing kerbside collections, collections at supermarkets and other retail stores to recycle or dispose of the majority of items. Please note that there are charges to bring certain types of waste to the site.
We are keen to divert as many reusable and repairable materials for better use than just throwing them away. The booking system allows us to plan for the types and volumes of material that we will receive and help us safely diversify site operations to enable more reuse and repair. We've so far been able to start collecting bicycles, furniture, laptops, children's toys and disability equipment etc. to give them for reuse and redistribution to local community groups/activities.
We throw away around 3 million tonnes of food and drink every year before we even get round to cooking or serving it. Storing food in the right way helps keep it fresh and tasty for longer and means less of the food we buy goes off and gets thrown away. Most packs now have storage information on the front of the pack, rather than the back, making it even easier to spot. There are loads of guides online explaining how to freeze all sorts of food items.
If you are a charity or not-for-profit organisation based in West London, you can request we waive our charges by completing the online application form. You will need to attach proof of your status as a not for profit organisation and your waste carriers registration.
