London Borough of Croydon

View map with the locations of all of Croydon's recycling sites.

There are three household reuse and recycling centres (HRRCs) within the borough where you can recycle a wide array of different items. These sites are for the use of Croydon residents only and you will need to bring ID to confirm your address. From 3 April 2017 you will need a permit to use the household reuse and recycling centres, find out more about the permit scheme.

The HRRCs will only accept household recycling and waste from your own property, commercial waste (commonly known as trade waste) is not accepted.

We will not tolerate verbal abuse and/or threatening behaviour towards staff. Incidents of verbal abuse and/or threatening behaviour will be investigated and could lead to access to the HRRCs being withdrawn.
