Essential major works are taking place at the Slyfield community waste recycling centre in Guildford, from tomorrow June 10 to Sunday June 30.

During this time, both the Slyfield Community Recycling Centre and the Waste Transfer Station will be temporarily closed.

The closure is to allow essential works to take place that will prolong the life of the site.

Guildford residents can take advantage of the Surrey Resident Scheme and take household waste and recycling to many other community recycling sites in Surrey.  These include:

Residents who would like to use another facility will need proof they are a Surrey resident.

The following documentation is acceptable as proof of address:

  • Driving licence
  • This year’s council tax bill
  • A recent utility bill
  • Surrey bus pass
  • Any official or government document that shows their name and address

During this time there may also be some delays to normal kerbside collection services. This is due to increased journey times to alternative disposal facilities.

To ensure that the waste collection service operates as efficiently as it can, food waste will be collected on separate vehicles. This means residents may find that one bin is emptied much earlier in the day than another.

Missed collections can be reported online in the usual manner at Report a missed bin collection – Guildford Borough Council.

More information about the dates and times that alternative recycling sites will be open can be found on the Surrey County Council website: Learn more about Surrey County Councils community recycling centres.

    Are you sure about the date of 10th June as the website and some road signage says 15th – 30th June?
