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:

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.

Revive re-use shop

In line with the government's roadmap out of lockdown, Surrey County Council are pleased to announce that the Leatherhead Revive re-use shop has reopened.

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).
