Churchfields Road reuse and recycling centre

Any household or garden waste can be taken to the reuse and recycling centre during the opening times. Soil, brick, DIY, rubble and construction waste may be disposed of for a fee according to weight. As the centre can be extremely busy at weekends and before bank holidays, try to plan your journey to the centre to avoid these times.

You can  view our webcam before you leave to check for queues.

If you need to dispose of bulky items, why not consider donating them?  You can also use our chargeable bulky waste collection service.

Costs

Bromley residents need to bring their reuse and recycling permit when visiting the centre in order to deposit bulky household and garden waste free of charge. If the permit is lost, residents will need to apply for a new permit.

Bromley residents will be charged if they want to dispose of soil, brick, rubble, DIY and construction waste according to the weight. Currently, the minimum charge is £21 and vehicles will need to use the weighbridge for an exact price.  Users not living within the borough will be charged £3 per visit. Trade or commercial waste will be weighed and a charge made according to the weight.

Information for traders

  • All commercial waste is subject to a Duty of Care waste transfer note.
  • Vehicles using the site (where applicable) must be registered with the Environment Agency and be able to produce a waste carrier registration or certificate number when requested. Information about how to obtain a waste carriers licence is available on the Environment Agency website.
  • Traders are now required to wear 'high vis' jackets - fluorescent jackets, hard hats and suitable footwear - when visiting the site.  This is to minimise the risk of injury to traders as they are in closer proximity to mechanised vehicles than the facilities used by residents.  
  • The weighbridge is closed between 1pm and 2pm on weekdays and we are unable to accept trade waste during this period.
