Bin Collection Calendar
There are also bins at Ashtead Peace Memorial Hall in Woodfield Lane which take cardboard, textiles, shoes and cartons.
Waste & Recycling - Epsom
The Epsom site has experienced long delays and traffic congestion. To combat this they will be introducing a pre-booking system. The intention is to introduce the pre-booking system as soon as practically possible. The exact date is expected to be within the next month. They need to ensure that the system is thoroughly tested and that residents have adequate notice of the changes. Council officers are commencing work on both readying the system and the publicity campaign.
The pre-booking system is in operation already in other counties and works well. It saves the frustration of massive queues and you know you will be able to drive in, drop off and exit all withing a short time frame.
Waste and Recycling - Leatherhead
As things change regularly at the moment, the best thing is to consult the SCC web site for Leatherhead Recycling Centre at Randalls Road. https://www.surreycc.gov.uk/waste-and-recycling/community-recycling-centres/leatherhead

Terracycle schemes - for hard to recycle items.
Terracycle partners with volunteers from the general public, as well as major consumer product companies, retailers, manufacturers and small businesses, to provide a route for the recycling of items which are not suitable for regular household recycling (i.e. via kerbside collections).
Such items include crisp, biscuit and popcorn packets; bread bags, pet food pouches, home hygiene products, ring carriers and certain types of coffee pods.
In addition, some Terracycle schemes enable the volunteers taking part to generate income for charities, for what they collect.
