We do not tolerate any form of abuse directed towards our site staff. Any serious incidents or threatening behaviour will be reported to the police and may result in council services being withdrawn.

All Surrey County Council recycling centres are run by SUEZ Surrey (formerly known as SITA Surrey).

Household waste

If you are not sure of the best way to recycle or dispose of a particular item of waste or you would like to know which is your nearest CRC, check 'What can I recycle?' and it will give you all the information you need.

Please be aware that some non-household materials are chargeable waste.

Rescue your recycling

Currently, almost a third of all waste thrown away in black bags at Surrey's CRCs could be recycled.

Before visiting a CRC, separate and sort your recycling from your waste to ensure that it gets recycled.

If residents separated all their recycling before visiting a CRC, it could save £1 million a year because it costs less to recycle waste than it does to dispose of it. Items such as paper and card, textiles, small electrical appliances and metals can all be recycled or reused. At each CRC, individual labelled containers make recycling quick and easy.

Recycling only CRCs

From 7 May 2019, our four smaller CRCs (Bagshot, Cranleigh, Dorking and Warlingham) will only accept recyclable waste. This is a trial while we review the council's waste and recycling service.
