Waldo 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 accepted for a fee according to weight. As the centre can be very 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.

Asbestos

There is also a container for cement-bonded asbestos. Once at the centre, you will need to contact the site staff to arrange for the container to be unlocked before you unload this material. Please note, it will only be accepted if it is put in at least two bags that have been sealed to prevent dust escaping.

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.  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. View the charges for disposing of trade or commercial waste.

Residents will be charged at the same rate as trade or commercial waste, if they want to dispose of soil, brick, rubble, DIY and construction waste. Currently, the minimum charge is £21 and vehicles will need to use the weighbridge for an exact price. 

Information for traders

The site is currently closed to traders and commercial customers while we carry out essential repairs to the weighbridge. Our advice is to use the Churchfields Road site. It is anticipated that the weighbridge will reopen on Monday 13 October. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

  • 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 'hi vis' jackets - florescent 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.
