Cranleigh Community Recycling Centre

Coronavirus - all centres closed

Our community recycling centres are closed with immediate effect from 24 March 2020 until further notice.

The County Council made the decision in the light of the Prime Minister's statement of 23 March 2020 to restrict all but essential movement.

The decision will be reviewed once new guidance has been issued by the government.

Residents should check with their district or borough council for the latest collection updates, and are asked to hold onto excess waste to prevent the service from becoming overwhelmed.

We thank you for your understanding.
