A 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. Please note there is no pedestrian access to the site.

The centre is currently closed to trade visitors. Traders should use alternative sites and check terms and conditions before visiting.

You must cancel your booking if you are unable to attend.

Book online

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).

You can book a slot up to 30 days in advance in advance. If no slots are showing for a particular day then none are available. Please check back regularly as new slots are released daily.

If you would prefer not to wait, you can order a bulky item collection or a garden waste sack to your home.

Changes and cancellations

If you need to, you can cancel or change your booking. To do this, you will need your booking reference and the email address you used to make the booking.
