Glass recycling - weekly collection


How to deal with waste if you are self-isolating

Latest government advice here.

Weekly glass recycling

Leave your bins in a clearly visible place at the edge of your property from 6.30am on collection day. We work as normal on bank holiday Mondays and Good Friday. What happens if a collection is missed? 

Your recycling box is for glass bottles and jars ONLY. You can recycle glass bottles and jars of any colour. You don't need to remove the labels, but you can take lids off and recycle them in your green recycling bin.

DON'T put your glass in your green recycling bin. Glass in your green bin smashes and devalues the rest of the contents. Right thing, right bin.

Please don't recycle:

  • Drinking glasses
  • Window or mirror glass
  • Ceramics

What's happening at the tip?

Surrey County Council has announced that its Community Recycling Centre (the tip) at Blenheim Road has re-opened but will ONLY accept garden waste and bagged refuse until further notice.

The site will be open 9am - 6pm seven days a week until further notice. Social distancing will be in place within the site. Traffic management measures will be in place in the approach roads (as normal, approach via Felstead Road by the Kia dealership). Expect significant queues.

Please note that the tip is operated by Surrey County Council, not Epsom & Ewell. Any queries should be directed to Surrey County Council.
