Recycling sites

This page contains a table showing recycling sites in the borough and the recyclable materials accepted at each site. Below this table is a list of items that can be recycled in each bin type.

To find your nearest Reigate and Banstead recycling point please look at:-

Not all sites can recycle all materials, so please check what each centre can recycle before planning your trip.

Please do not place your recycling in plastic bags or any other container, please place items clean and loose in the bins. Plastic bags are unacceptable and cause problems for our facilities where the material is recycled.

To report any damage or overflowing at one of our recycling sites use the recycling centre online form.
