Our kerbside green garden waste collections have stopped for the winter
Until the free fortnightly service resumes in the spring, you can also take garden waste for free to any of the following East London Waste Authority (ELWA) Refuse & Recycling Centres, including:
- Chigwell Road, Redbridge
- Jenkins Lane, Newham
- Frizlands Lane, Barking & Dagenham
- Gerpins Lane, Havering
ID is required to dispose of waste at ELWA refuse and recycling centres.
Other ways to dispose of garden waste
Green waste such as grass trimmings, plant cuttings, and weeds are ideal for composting alongside waste from the home such as shredded paper, cardboard, and egg shells. Composting is great for the environment and is a fantastic natural way to dispose of garden waste.
We’d like to encourage more residents to find out the benefits of composting.
Remember that you must dispose of all your rubbish responsibly. Dumping rubbish is a serious offence and those caught fly-tipping face a £400 on-the-spot fine.
