Refuse & Recycling Collections

All kerbside refuse & recycling collections are taking place as scheduled (see below re Bank Holiday collections).

August Bank Holiday

We will be collecting as normal on Bank Holiday Monday (28 August), so there will be no change to your normal collection day over the Bank Holiday week. Bank Holiday collection arrangements throughout the year are updated here.

Borough Green Recycling Site

The recycling site at Quarry Hill was closed earlier this year. We now have a new recycling site at Borough Green Railway Station, as of 1 September.

Cannon Lane Recycling Site

The owners of the old B&Q site, Cannon Lane, asked us to remove our recycling banks whilst they carried out resurfacing works. As of July 2017, the banks are located just around the corner in the car park of Swanmead Sportsground, next to Tonbridge Golf Centre.

Glass & Can banks at recycling sites

Due to one of the two collection vehicles having urgent repairs, there may be some delay in emptying glass & can banks at our recycling sites. More information can be found on our Recycling Sites page.

Phone Issues

If you have difficulty getting through to us by phone, please check our web pages at www.tmbc.gov.uk/waste to find the information you need or complete one our many online forms, such as for missed collections or replacement bins. If you still can't find what you need, please email waste.services@tmbc.gov.uk and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.
