Temporary closure of Slyfield community recycling centre


Essential major works are taking place at the Slyfield community waste recycling centre (SWRC) Guildford, from the 10 to the 30 June.

The SCWRC and the Waste Transfer Station will be closed during this time. This will allow these essential works to take place prolonging the life of the site.

Guildford residents can take advantage of the Surrey Resident Scheme. Household waste and recycling can be taken to many other community recycling sites in Surrey.  These include:

Residents that would like to use another facility, will need proof they are a Surrey resident.

The following documentation is acceptable as proof of address:

  • Driving licence
  • This year's council tax bill
  • A recent utility bill
  • Surrey bus pass
  • Any official or government document that shows their name and address

During this time there may also be some delays to our normal kerbside collection service. This is due to increased journey times to alternative disposal facilities.

Food waste will be collected on separate vehicles. This means residents may find that one bin is emptied much earlier in the day than the other.

Missed collections can be reported online in the usual manner. Report a missed bin collection - Guildford Borough Council.
