Rubbish Tips and Recycling

There are a number of locations throughout the borough where you can take your waste and/or recyclable material.

There are three tips in the borough where you can take your waste and recyclable material, these are known as ˜Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs). There are also a number of sites where you can take some types of recyclable material (bottle banks, paper recycling bins, etc). These sites are known as 'Bring Sites'.

Local Rubbish Tips

The tips are run by Kent County Council (KCC) and NOT Swale Borough Council.

For detailed information including opening times, materials and items accepted, as well as all you need to know about the height barriers, bans on trade waste, hazardous waste and much more, please visit the Kent County Council website by clicking the links below:

You can also make enquires by calling Kent waste and recycling on 03000 41 73 73 or Kent environment line 03000 41 71 71.

Trade / Business waste

Kent County Council operates 5 Transfer Stations across Kent which are able to accept some trade waste. A charge will be made for using the transfer stations. For more information, please visit the KCC website by visiting Kent County Council - Transfer Stations.

Bring Sites - What are they and where are they?

In addition to the Household Waste Recycling Centres there are a number of Bring Sites throughout the borough which can take certain types of recyclable waste. The table below shows you where the bring sites are and the materials that can be recycled.

Whilst every effort is made to keep these details up to date, as some facilities are provided by third parties we cannot guarantee accuracy.
