Immediate closure of the Recycling Centres in
Bracknell & Reading

Following Prime Minister’s announcement on strict restrictions on movement and non-essential gatherings, re3 has taken the decision to close the Recycling Centres in Bracknell and Reading. This decision has not been taken lightly, but we must now all play our part, stay home to save lives and protect the vulnerable, elderly and the NHS.

re3 will work with its Contractor to redeploy staff and maintain effective receipt of waste from collection services and operate as efficiently as possible.
We will review this decision after the initial three-week period, taking into account the Government advice at the time. During this time, we are asking residents to maximise the kerbside collections and hold-on to any inert waste they may have. We are grateful to all residents for their understanding.

re3 recycling centres to re-open next week on restricted basis with a booking system in place

To gain access to sites, residents will have to book a time slot using a ‘Click & Tip’ service

The re3 recycling centres on Longshot Lane, Bracknell and Smallmead Island Road, Reading will reopen on 18th May, Monday with a booking system in place. The sites have been temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

An online booking system, ‘Click and Tip’ will open at 10AM, 15th May, Friday and residents of Bracknell Forest, Reading and Wokingham Boroughs will be able to book a time slot via the webform provided on the local councils and re3 websites. Bookings will be available for slots from 8am – 6pm, Monday to Sunday, and residents can book up to 7 days in advance. Due to the limited number of booking slots available, with the sites only operating at 50% of usual capacity, residents are urged to continue to safely store waste at home and only make a booking if the trip to the recycling centres is essential.

The health of residents and staff is always the highest priority, so everyone visiting the reopened sites must follow traffic signs, staff advice and adhere to the social distancing measures that have been put in place.

More information can be found on the re3 website.

Bookings will go live on 10AM, Friday and residents can make a booking via the webform: Click&Tip service.
