Community recycling centres

From Monday 1 June, residents will be able to take more types of waste to Surrey’s community recycling centres.

Ten of Surrey’s CRCs were reopened on 11 May, but only for black bag waste and garden waste. From 1 June more materials, including wood, scrap metal, small electronics and white goods, will be accepted once again.

The full list of what can be taken will be available from 1 June at surreycc.gov.uk/recycling or by calling 03456 009 009. Unfortunately, the sites won’t be able to accept chargeable waste (soil, rubble, plasterboard or tyres), as staff are unable to safely process payments, or textiles, as reprocessors are not currently able to take it.

Recycling banks

It is possible that recycling banks won’t be emptied regularly. Use the Surrey Recycles search tool to check if the item you’d normally take to a recycling bank can be recycled through your collection service. If not, please hold onto it until recycling bank services are back to normal.
