Changes to some recycling centres around the Borough

Recycling bins in the Town Hall car park, Epsom, have recently been removed due to forthcoming changes to how that car park operates.  The nearest recycling centre is situated in Depot Road car park, Epsom.

Further, the recycling bins at the corner of Cunliffe Road and Vale Road have been removed due to persistent problems with littering and contamination of bins with non-recyclable materials.

The former recycling centre at Sainsbury's, Kiln Lane, Epsom is now run directly by Sainsbury's.

Where are the Borough's Recycling Centres and what can be recycled?

Details of the Council's recycling centres around the Borough, at which you can recycle a variety of materials.

Use My Epsom & Ewell to find your nearest Recycling Centre and check your kerbside recycling collection day.

In addition, the Civic Amenity Site at Blenheim Road (the "Tip") offers a wide range of material recycling opportunities.

A range of materials is recyclable, but space restrictions mean that it is not possible to recycle all materials at all sites. The table below tells you what can be recycled at which site, with more detailed information below.
