Household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) are provided as a place where residents can safely dispose their household waste and recycling free of charge. There are 3 centres available to Slough residents.
Details for the Burnham and Langley centres can be found on the Buckinghamshire County Council website.
The Chalvey HWRC is available to Slough and Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead residents only. Most items of household waste can be accepted free of charge.
The public site is open 7 days a week. Last entry 15 minutes prior to closing.
In order to maintain high recycling rates, reduce illegal dumping and abuse by traders, an acceptance guidance is in place which details what items can and cannot be accepted. Please be aware that certain items may be refused if you have not followed this guidance.
If you need assistance recycling or unloading any items from your vehicle, please ask a site operative who will be happy to help.
If there is an enquiry in to the origin of the waste that you are bringing to the HWRC, the site operative may refer you to the lower site and weighbridge.
Drivers should report to the weighbridge office, where vehicles are inspected to make sure only domestic waste is being disposed and recycled.
Commercial or trade waste operators will not be able to access the HWRC. Please visit the weighbridge during opening times.
Traders will need to show copies of their ‘Waste Carriers Licence’ at time of tipping. Businesses have a legal duty of care to dispose of their waste properly and must pay commercial rates. It is illegal to deposit trade waste at the HWRC.
