Visiting a recycling centre

When visiting you may expect:

  • A limit on the number of vehicles unloading 
  • Social distancing measures in place with visitors encouraged to wear masks.
  • Only residents who pay council tax to Buckinghamshire Council can use the sites. Slough Borough Council residents are able to use Langley and Burnham sites only.
  • Sites open usual winter hours (no booking required)
  • During busy periods, especially at weekends, last entry may be before 6pm to allow those already onsite to unload their waste and exit by 6pm

Before you visit please:

  • Check the webcams online to see how busy the site is and for the quieter times to visit.
  • Only visit if you cannot store your waste or use another disposal method such as the kerbside service.
  • Bring proof of address. 
  • Only allow one person out of the vehicle unless you need help unloading waste. Staff cannot offer assistance at the moment.
  • Come back another time if the site is busy.
