Bin collections 

To minimise delays, please follow these guidelines:

  • Put your bins out early and leave them out until they’ve been emptied.
  • Be considerate when parking your car on your collection day, because this will help to ensure the collection vehicles can easily access your road.
  • Put the right items in the right bins. Use the Surrey Recycles search tool to find out what goes in which bin.
  • Reduce the amount of waste you produce. Consider using an alternative reusable item. Read these tips on how to reduce the amount of waste you produce.
  • Compact your recycling into bins as much as possible to maximise space and only put bins out when they’re full.
  • Start composting at home. You can buy a compost bin at a reduced rate, but if you’d like to compost all your food waste, consider buying a waste digester.

Read the latest guidance on how to deal with your waste if you're self-isolating.
