Refuse & Recycling

Information about refuse and recycling services available in Capel.

Mole Valley residents currently recycle more than 58% of their waste, making the area among the best recyclers in the UK. This has been achieved through a number of schemes, including the food waste recycling service. There are also a number of recycling banks throughout the district, including in both of the main town centres.

There are a number of recycling sites throughout Mole Valley which are open to the public. However, these locations are site specific as to what materials they can accept.

For More Information about the locations and what materials are accepted at each site please click here.

Residents can take materials that are not suitable to be put in either your recycling or waste bins to a number of community recycling and waste transfer sites in the county.

Community Recycling Centres are where you can take any recycling that cannot be placed in your green recycling wheelie bin.
