Waste and recycling centres

Our waste and recycling centres are for the disposal of household rubbish and recycling.

In this section:

West Drayton waste weekends

Railway Sidings, Tavistock Road, West Drayton, UB7 7QT

The site is open for Hillingdon residents with a HillingdonFirst card or a driving licence and a household bill.

As vehicles queue to use the site, members of our staff will check for proof of address. Any non residents or residents who do not have proof of address or a HillingdonFirst card will be asked to leave the queue. 

The site is open Saturday and Sunday, 9am to 5pm.

Using the site

To ensure the safety of our residents and employees, the following temporary measures have been introduced:

  • the number of vehicles allowed on site will be restricted - subsequently, queuing times will be longer than normal; please be patient
  • social distancing of at least 2 metres will be enforced at all times
  • only 2 people per vehicle will be allowed to leave their vehicle to restrict personal contact
  • each car will be allocated the next available bay in the tipping area (regardless of the material and disposal bay the resident may need to use) to allow a faster flow of vehicles in and out of the site - this may mean that residents have to walk their materials to a bay not the closest to their car
  • our staff will not be able to assist with any unloading from vehicles; they will be onsite to ensure waste is disposed of in the correct areas
