Waste collections today


Missed food and refuse - Thursday 4 June

We regret that for operational reasons we were unable to collect food waste and refuse in two roads - Elmwood Drive and Ewell Park Way - today, Thursday 4 June.

Please leave your bins out, we will return to empty them in the morning, Friday 5 June.

We apologise for this issue and thank you for your patience.

Current services at the tip

Following the further, phased re-opening of the tip, we are advised that there have been very heavy traffic queues for the tip. We advise you only to go if it is essential.

From Monday 1 June Surrey County Council's Community Recycling Centre (the tip) at Blenheim Road will accept most types of waste.


Before you travel check Surrey County Council's website for full details of what you can dispose of at the tip 


  • Chargeable waste (soil, rubble, plasterboard or tyres): this is due to payment-related operational issues
  • Textiles: this is due to the continued closure of Surrey County Council’s textile recycler.  Weekly kerbside textile collections
  • Asbestos: this is due to social distancing restrictions meaning that not all waste containers can yet be activated

Due to social distancing staff will not be able to assist you in unloading your vehicle, including white goods. So only bring to the site what you can carry yourself.

Social distancing rules will remain in place. This will limit how many cars can visit at any time, and reduce the through-flow of cars by around 75% compared to normal at this time of year. As a result, traffic management will be in place. Expect significant queues and only visit the tip if it is essential.

This week the tip will be open from 8am to 5pm. Next week (starting Monday 8 June) it will change to opening 8am to 4pm.

Residents using a van, pick-up or trailer will be able to visit the tip again but, as normal, will still need a van permit.

Please note that the tip is operated by Surrey County Council, to whom any queries should be directed.
