Harefield Civic Amenity Site
Residents wishing to use this site require a HillingdonFirst card when visiting in a car. Residents wishing to visit the site in a van will need 2 forms of ID (a photo ID and a household bill dated within the last 3 months).
Residents will need to be with their own rubbish. Any van that arrives at the site without the correct ID or ID in another person's name may be refused entry.
During our busiest times, queues at this site can average around an hour and half. Avoid the long wait and visit on quieter days (Wednesdays and Thursdays).

Remember: Black bags and garden waste can be put out as part of your normal weekly collection.
Donate unwanted items or pick up a bargain next time you visit Harefield Civic Amenity Site with our new reuse centre, located to your right after you drive through the barriers.
Residents can bring good quality items to be upcycled or reused and also browse a large selection of quality, affordable household items to take home.
Everything from tables, chairs and storage boxes to toys, chest of drawers and cabinets can be donated. (The reuse centre cannot accept any textiles or electrical items, such as TVs or hair dryers, as we cannot test whether they work or are safe. )
While there are no prices on individual items, we encourage people to make a donation each time they take an item away. All proceeds will go to the Mayor's chosen charities Domestic Abuse Survivors and Navratri Garba.
- This site is not accessible to pedestrians.
- All vehicles will only have access to the site via Harvil Road to assist with traffic congestion.
- Please do not turn right into New Years Green Lane from Harvil Road. Instead, join the back of the queue coming down from Harefield.
- Hillingdon residents with their HillingdonFirst card or driving licence and a household bill can use this site for free. As vehicles queue to use the site, members of our staff will check for proof of address.
- Non Hillingdon residents visiting in a car can use the site at a charge of £10 per visit. Please use the van/trade entrance and approach the weighbridge office.
- For non Hillingdon residents visiting in a van, full trade prices will be applied.
- Residents are advised to avoid lunch time periods, between 11am and midday, and the last half hour when queue times peak.
- The number of vehicles allowed on site will be restricted - subsequently, queuing times may be longer than normal; please be patient.
- Social distancing guidelines should be followed 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.
- Please do not leave waste on the floor next to disposal bays, as these can cause a trip hazard.
- Children (under the age of 16) and pets must remain in the car.
We do not accept gas cylinders at this site. This includes fire extinguishers, beer barrels and oxygen tanks.
If gas cannisters are thrown into the general rubbish, there is a high risk of causing a fire.
Calor gas cylinders can be taken back to a Calor gas supplier; some petrol stations may also accept them. For other gas cannisters, we advise residents to contact Grundons.
We do accept the helium canisters, but these must be handed to a member of staff.
