Following the Prime Minister’s statement on 23 March 2020, we have been informed by the East London Waste Authority (ELWA) that the Gerpins Lane Reuse and Recycle Centre in Upminster and all of their other similar facilities across Barking and Dagenham, Newham and Redbridge, will be closed to the public and businesses until further notice.

Any announcements on when they will reopen will be made on the ELWA website.
