Southend - Household Waste Recycling Centres

Please scroll down for more information.

Did you know that you can recycle a wider range of things at HWRCs than you can at the kerbside?  To find out what items are accepted at the sites, please click here.

Veolia operate two Household Waste and Recycling Centres in the borough.  Stock Road and Leigh Marshes.

There are a few things to remember when visiting the sites:

  • The waste must be your own. There are exceptions to this (e.g. some commercial waste), but please phone our Customer Service Centre on 0203 567 6955 for more information. 
  • You must live in the borough and there are also restrictions on the type of vehicle you can bring to the sites.  Please click here for further details.
  • If you would like to find out more about waste and recycling collections from your business address, or information on your obligations as a commercial producer of waste, please contact us here.

    Both sites have CCTV cameras and ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) installed.  This is to monitor the frequency of visits by all vehicles to help identify unauthorised business waste and for the prevention of crime.
