Guildford 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.

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.

Future plans for the centre

We are working to relocate the community recycling centre on Moorfield Road and to improve operations at the waste transfer station.

The planned new centre will have a number of benefits including:

  • A better layout making it easier for you to recycle
  • Space for more containers, so we can collect a wider range of materials and change what goes in each bin in line with seasonal demands.
  • Separate roads for cars and HGVs (heavy goods vehicles) to reduce queuing
  • Additional parking spaces so more people can use the facility at the same time
  • An improved waste transfer station so local councils can collect more materials from the kerbside
  • A better location providing easier access
