Book a slot for Townmead
Due to a major fire, the centre will open at a reduced capacity until further notice. This will also impact what you can bring to recycle.
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.
Businesses and Traders wishing to use the site will not need to pre-book – however they must have a valid Waste Carriers Licence.
You must cancel your booking if you are unable to attend.
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 two weeks 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.
Changes and cancellations
Townmead Recycling Centre will be included in the expanded Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) from 25 October 2021. Vehicles will either need to meet the ULEZ emissions standards, or pay a £12.50 daily charge when entering the expanded zone. You can check your vehicle on the TfL website.
