Guidance for taking household rubbish to our waste and recycling centres (tip/dumps)

Customer notice

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, it will not be possible for residents to drop off waste or recyclables at our Smugglers Way or Cringle Street facilities in a car or van until further notice.

There are two tips/recycling centres in Wandsworth:

These sites do not accept commercial waste.

If you are arriving in a van or in a car with a trailer you must notify them of your visit and follow certain guidelines.

Reusable items

Please consider dropping off reusable items at a charity shop close to these waste facilities. A number of local charity shops can accept furniture, most white goods, small electrical items, books, vinyl records and household bric-a-brac.

Alternatively, sell your unwanted items online or offer them free of charge on Freegle to local residents who might want them.


There is a weighbridge at each waste transfer stations. For opening times go to the WRWA website.
