Charges at local community recycling centres:

From 1 September 2016, Surrey County Council  introduced charges at Surrey's community recycling centres (CRCs). An increased demand for essential services and reduced Government funding has meant that Surrey County Council needs to reduce its spending in other areas. Charges have been introduced for some types of  non-household waste at the nine CRCs that accept these types of waste. For more information please visit SCC Community Recycling Centre charges.
