Community recycling centres

Charges for some non-household waste will apply from 1 September 2016 at Surrey's community recycling centres. Find out more about these charges.

Surrey has 15 community recycling centres where you can take your household waste. Recycling centres used to be known as rubbish tips or dumps. They are now called recycling centres, as the majority of waste is recycled.

Household waste

Our recycling centres are free to Surrey residents. We accept over 30 different types of household waste materials and recycle as much as possible.

You will need to obtain a van permit, before your visit, if you are bringing household waste in either a van, pick-up or trailer.

Some recycling centres require proof that you live in Surrey. Please check with your local recycling centre to see if you need to take proof of address with you.

Find out if any of the restrictions above apply to you by viewing your local recycling centre below.

Business waste and waste transfer stations

Epsom, Guildford, Leatherhead and Shepperton (this site will be shut to business waste from 31 March 2016 until further notice) all accept business waste. Each transfer station will weigh your waste and  charge for your business waste disposal .
