Earlswood Community Recycling Centre

Coronavirus - Community Recycling Centres update 6 January 2021

Surrey's Community Recycling Centres (CRCs) will remain open, however the Revive re-use shops will be closed.

Please do not visit the CRCs unless your journey is essential – stay at home. You should not visit the CRCs if you are any of the following:

  • Extremely vulnerable and are remaining at home for shielding purposes.
  • Symptomatic with coronavirus (COVID-19).
  • In 10-day self isolation. (Please refer to the NHS website for specific guidance on self isolation)

Residents using a van, pick-up or trailer can use the sites again, but will still need a valid van permit and adhere to the van permit terms and conditions.

Introducing ANPR at our CRCs from March 2021 onwards

Surrey County Council is introducing Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology to thirteen of its fifteen Community Recycling Centres. The system will capture and read an image of visitors' vehicle number plates to enable monitoring of usage and to assist in identifying unauthorised users. The cameras will be rolled out throughout March with the system going live shortly thereafter.

Site rules

  • Staff and visitors must adhere to the 2m social distancing rules at all times. There will be clearly marked walkways and only one person will be able to be on the gantries to access the containers at any time.
  • People must remain in their vehicle whilst queuing.
  • Site staff will not be able to help you move your waste, so please only bring what you can safely carry.
  • You must not come to the site if you are self-isolating because you or a member of your household has or has had symptoms of COVID-19.
  • If you or anyone in your household has had COVID-19 symptoms, your waste must be double bagged and only brought to the site after being left for 72 hours.

These site rules apply to all residents visiting any of our CRCs at all times.


Opening times

  • Monday to Sunday - 8am to 4pm
  • The centre is open as usual on Bank Holidays with the exception of Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day when the centre is closed.

Information for customers with disabilities

We are happy for elderly, infirm or disabled residents to bring somebody with them to help.

If this is not possible, on arrival at the site please ask a member of staff if they can provide you with a trolley. You must however be able to unload the waste into the trolley yourself. Once unloaded, a member of the site staff will take the trolley away and dispose of the waste in the appropriate containers. Social distancing requirements need to be observed at all times.

Getting to the site

We have to keep roads clear around Earlswood CRC to maintain access to East Surrey Hospital. To support this there will be NO right hand turn into the CRC from the A23. Signage and marshals will be in place to direct traffic into the site from the South.

Traffic will be signed south on the A23 to Three Arch Road where it would turn around and turn right to rejoin the A23 northbound and turn left into the site.

Revive re-use shop

Due to Tier 4 Covid-19 restrictions recently introduced in Surrey, all Revive reuse shops will be closed until further notice.

Revive reuse shops sell pre-owned items for the home and garden, reducing waste and supporting local charities.

By donating and shopping at the Revive re-use shops you will be helping to:

  • Reduce waste and the associated disposal costs.
  • Maintain essential services within Surrey County Council as revenue raised in the shops is used to offset the running costs of the CRCs.
  • Raise money for local charities (10% of net profit is donated to charity).
