We have only two small local community recycling centres - Bond Rd, Warlingham and Chaldon Rd, Caterham on the Hill.
Conservative run Surrey have already made thefollowing changes:
- Cut opening hours by 1 hour a day
- Cut opening days closing Chaldon Rd Wednesdays and Bond Rd Sundays and Mondays
- Cut what can be recycled locally - any building waste must go to Earlswood or Epsom
Now the Tories running Surrey are going to charge to recycle domestic building materials from £4 a bag to £50 a car load.
Cllr Alun Jones of Caterham Valley says, “This is madness. It is important we make it easy for people to do the right thing. If you clear up a few rocks from your garden, you must now take it to Earlswood and be charged!”
