A new online booking system is in place for Townmead Recycling Centre, enabling people to book their slot in advance and avoid lengthy queues. Visitors arriving without a booking will be turned away and not be allowed entry.
If no time slots are displayed, that day is fully booked – please choose another day.
You can book a slot up to two weeks in advance. If no slots are available, please check back regularly as new slots will be released daily.
When booking your slot, you will be asked for a list of items you wish to bring. This is only a guide and if you change the items there will be no requirement to inform us as you will still be authorised entry (please ensure you have checked which items are unacceptable).
If you are unable to attend, please cancel the booking online or inform us to cancel the booking to ensure others can book a slot.
Businesses and Traders wishing to use the site will not need to pre-book – however they must have a valid Waste Carriers Licence.
Please note there is no pedestrian access to the site.
