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. 

In this section

Remember: Black bags and garden waste can be put out as part of your normal weekly collection.

Accessing the site

  • 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.

Cost of using the site

  • 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. 

Busy times

  • Residents are advised to avoid lunch time periods between 11am and 12pm, the last half hour when queue times peak and not to join the queue after 5.30pm.
  • Due to Rickmansworth Household Waste Recycling Centre being closed on a Tuesday and Wednesday, residents should expect longer queues and may want to visit on alternative days. 

Using the site safely

  • 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.
