The reasons why we use your personal data

This privacy notice applies to the operation of Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras at Surrey County Council Community Recycling Centres (CRCs).

How we are allowed to use your personal data

In accessing a Surrey County Council CRC equipped with ANPR cameras, you consent to the collection and processing of the data described above. Two CRCs, namely Bagshot and Warlingham are not equipped with ANPR cameras and you may elect to use these facilities should you object to collection and processing of the data. However, these sites do not accept residual waste.

You have the right to remove the data at any time however this will mean that, if you have a van permit, your permit will no longer be valid and you will not be able to access any of our community recycling centres with a van, pickup or trailer. (See also the Waste Operations Van Permits privacy notice.)

If at any time you want to remove your consent, please contact us at the following email address: wasteoperations@surreycc.gov.uk.
