Announcement from Surrey County Council:
Following the successful reopening of the community recycling centres last month, from Monday 1 June, residents will be able to take more types of waste to Surrey's CRCs including wood, scrap metal, small electronics and white goods.
Social distancing rules on site will remain in places for the safety and wellbeing of staff and visitors to sites. This means the number of people allowed in each site at any one time will be limited. It's expected that only a quarter of cars will be able to pass through the sites, compared to the typical peak time visitor levels at this time of year.
Therefore, queues are expected and people should only visit the CRC if it's essential. If you do travel to the CRCs, please follow instructions from traffic marshals.
Opening hours are also changing at the sites. From 1 June, all sites that are currently operating, except Farnham and Camberley, will be open from 8am to 5pm. Farnham and Camberley will be open from 8am to 4pm. Then, from Monday 8 June, all ten sites that are currently operating will be open from 8am to 4pm.
The five smaller sites that are currently closed will remain closed for the time-being as it is not possible to safely open them with social distancing measures in place.
Residents using a van, pick-up or trailer will be able to visit the sites again but will still need a van permit, as usual. Due to social distancing measures, staff will not be able to assist you in unloading your vehicle, this includes white goods. So please only bring to site what you can carry yourself.
Unfortunately, the Revive re-use shops remain closed at this time and the sites do not have capacity to store items for re-use, so please hold onto these at home for the time-being.
At the moment, the sites won't be able to accept chargeable waste (soil, rubble, plasterboard or tyres), or textiles. Please check the website for full details of opening hours and materials you can take, before you travel.
