Recycling - sites

Last Updated:

There are currently over 40 recycling sites around Tonbridge and Malling for the collection and recycling of a number of different recyclable materials. You can recycle newspaper and magazines, plastic bottles, glass bottles and jars, cans, textiles, shoes and even CDs and books. The sites vary in size and the types of material that can be collected for recycling.

The usage of many of our recycling sites has fallen as expected since the introduction of additional kerbside recycling collections, therefore we will be reducing the number of sites to 10 strategic locations across the borough, these being:

Aylesford - Bailey Bridge car park, Borough Green - Station Approach, Burham - Village Hall Rochester Road, Hadlow - Hadlow College, Tonbridge Road, Kings Hill - Asda, Alexander Grove, Larkfield - Morrisons car park, New Hythe Lane, Larkfield - Tesco Lunsford Park, Snodland - Rocford Road car park, Tonbridge - Sovereign Way car park, West Malling - High Street car park.

We will taking a phased approach to the removal of the remaining sites, phase 1 will commence from 11 January 2021. We will notify on this page in advance of further phases. Please see below for the list of sites for removal and current alternatives:
