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 the 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 item 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

Our reuse and recycling centres are cashless, we accept card payments only.

Bromley residents need to bring their council tax bill, drivers licence or a form of identification that includes their address when visiting the centre in order to use the site for the disposal of recycling and waste free of charge. If you use the reuse and recycling centre and do not have a appropriate documentation, if you are in a car, as a resident, you will be charged £3, payable in cash at the weighbridge.

If residents want to dispose of soil, brick, rubble, DIY and construction waste there is a charge. Currently, the minimum charge is £23 and vehicles will need to use the weighbridge for an exact price.
