New booking system at Smugglers Way

From Monday 22 March 2021, residents will need to book a slot before visiting the Smugglers Way Household Waste and Recycling Centre by car or motorcycle (but not when dropping off waste on foot or by bicycle). The new six-month trial from Western Riverside is being introduced to help reduce traffic levels in Smugglers Way.

You can start booking slots from Monday 15 March 2021. Find out more in Western Riverside's FAQs.

Media banks for your unwanted CDs and DVDs

Recycle your unwanted CDs, DVDs, cassette tapes and videos

There are two ‘media banks’ in the borough, installed by the British Heart Foundation (BHF). It’s an easy way to drop off music and films that you no longer want.

BHF volunteers collect donated items from the banks for sale in the shops.

The banks are at the following locations:

  • Uxbridge Road, opposite Askew Crescent, W12 0NE
  • Waitrose, Heckfield Place, SE6 5BE
