Hounslow Council has announced that the borough’s re-use and recycling centre, Space Waye, will close on two weekends in December for works to enable it to return to seven days a week access for the public.

Since October 2016 Space Waye has not been open to the public on Mondays to Fridays as it has been handling recycled waste from homes across the borough while a new recycling facility was being built at Southall Lane. Now that is becoming operational, Space Waye can return to full public access but needs some work on its layout first.

Space Waye will be closed on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 December, and on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 December.
It will re-open to the public seven days a week on Monday 18 December.

On the two weekends Space Waye is closed, residents can take waste to sites in neighbouring West London Waste Authority boroughs. The nearest sites are:

  • Townmead Road Reuse and Recycling Centre, Townmead Road, Kew, TW9 4EL
  • Greenford Road Re-use and Recycling Centre, Greenford, UB6 9AP.

Charges may apply to vans and if disposing of building materials and DIY waste [Use of these sites is free when showing proof of address (Council Tax bill or recently dated utility bill)

Detailed information is available on the Space Waye page.

Residents with bulky items can book a Tidy Town collection for a charge or donate good quality furniture to the Hounslow Furniture Project who will collect items for free.

Anyone wanting advice or support about what can and cannot be recycled can email the Recycling team for information.
