Learn more about Waste Disposal in Romford
Havering Council offers free rubbish and recycling collection on a weekly basis for all residents; however, businesses are expected to pay-in for their waste to be collected and disposed of by the council. Residential recycling and general rubbish can be also taken to several nearby recycling centres, giving residents plenty of waste disposal options.
Recycling centres at Gerpins Lane, Frizlands Lane, Jenkins Lane in Newham and Chigwell Road in Redbridge all offer their services to residents in Romford and are managed by the ELWA. Alongside these centres, there are also micro-recycling points around the town where you can dispose of glass, plastics, and textiles.
Of the 402,000 tonnes of waste collected by Romford’s local council over the last year, only 39% of it was recycled or reused. This is something that the council and local waste disposal businesses would like to change as Romford’s council has one of the highest local authority spends for waste management in London, Havering Council spends almost £60,000,000 a year on its waste activities.
