From Monday, 22nd March 2021, residents who wish to use the Smugglers Way Household Waste and Recycling Centre in a car, or on a motorcycle, must have booked a slot before they arrive at the Centre. It will be possible to book a slot from when the system goes live on Monday, 15th March 2021.
The Authority is introducing this new six-month trial to reduce the longstanding queuing problems on Smugglers Way, particularly at weekends and on Bank Holidays. By controlling the times the Centre is used, staff can redistribute visits which will reduce the peak usage, thereby decreasing queues and lessening the impact on the local community.
The booking system will also ensure that usage of the Centre is limited to only residents of the London Boroughs of Hammersmith & Fulham, Lambeth, Wandsworth, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and the City of Westminster, saving council tax payers over £100,000 per year.
Please note it will not be necessary to book in if you are intending to drop off waste on foot or by bicycle.
