Leatherhead Community Recycling Centre

Possible short closures in November

Due to site surveys, needing to take place on some of our Community Recycling Centres (CRCs), there may be some disruption at the following locations:

  • Leatherhead (Friday 4 November)
  • Earlswood (Wednesday 9 November to Friday 11 November)

It is hoped that work can take place prior to opening or, after closing, however it is possible that work may overrun, resulting in unannounced closures for short periods.

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

Revive re-use shop

Open as normal during site opening times.

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).
