Recycling centres are currently free to Surrey residents using a car, for household and for non-household waste. The centre recycle over 30 different types of household waste materials.
However from 4 December there will be no free daily allowance for householders of chargeable non-household waste such as rubble, plasterboard and soil.
According to the SCC information, the following charges will apply for:
- Tyres from cars, motorcycles and all other motorised vehicles (including non-motorised vehicles and trailers pulled by a motorised vehicle): £5 per tyre or part tyre.
- Waste from construction, alteration or repair of your home and garden including:
- Breeze blocks, bricks, rubble, soil, stones, ceramic bathroom fittings, tiles: £4 per bag or part bag of this waste (Bags no bigger than 50cm x 77cm)
- Concrete fence post, ceramic bath, cistern, paving slab: £4 per item
- Plasterboard: £4 per bag or part bag or per sheet of this waste (Bags no bigger than 50cm x 77cm and sheets no bigger than 120cm x 240cm). From 4 December 2017 the cost per sheet of plasterboard will increase to £12.
If these materials are loose, a charge of £50 will apply per car load.
Additionally, if you are bringing household waste in either a van, pick-up or trailer you will need to obtain a van permit before your visit.
From 8 January if you need to dispose of non-household waste (such as from DIY projects) in a van, it can only be accepted at the larger recycling centres – this includes the one at Shepperton.
