Site closure: Pepperhill Household Waste and Recycling Centre will be closed until August 2018 due to a serious fire. This timescale allows for safety investigations and for rebuilding to take place. As a result all other sites are extremely busy. If it is necessary for you to visit one of Kent’s other sites, please be prepared for long delays.

If you are using the Dartford Heath site as an alternative, you must bring proof of Kent residency.
