Surrey County Council is proposing further cuts to the service provided by the Community Recycling Centres (CRCs) known as dumps or tips.

The planned cuts involve closing all Surrey CRCs on two days a week, permanently shutting four centres (Bagshot, Cranleigh, Dorking and Warlingham), scrapping the free daily allowance of one bag of non-household rubbish and making anyone visiting the Farnham and Camberley centres prove that they live in Surrey.

In addition, anyone driving a van, trailer or pick-up truck will have to use larger CRCs only.

The council has run a public consultation on the proposals, the closing date was 7 August .

The council says that changes are being proposed in order to save money because of “continued cuts to funding, rising costs and increasing demand for key services” which mean that the council must make savings of more than £100m this year.
