Mixed recycling bin
Light bulbs and water filters can be recycled at the Surrey County Council community recycling centre at Earlswood and Epsom. Water filters can also be recycled at local retail shops e.g. Robert Dyas.
Please rinse items before putting them in your mixed recycling bin.
We collect food waste every week. Emptying your kitchen caddy regularly into the lockable outside food container and rinsing it out should avoid food smelling. Line your kitchen caddy with newspaper or corn starch/compostable liners. You can also line your outside bin with newspaper too. Corn starch/compostable liners are available at your local supermarket or online.
