Recycling centre - the tip

Before visiting Longshot Lane or Smallmead it is important that you visit re3's website for more information about the sites, including opening times.

Recycling centre residents’ permits

Only people paying their council tax to Bracknell Forest, Reading and Wokingham can dispose of household waste and recycling at Longshot Lane and Smallmead.

Every household in these areas was posted a residents’ permit for use at the re3 recycling centres in summer 2016.

It's no longer necessary to have a residents’ permit to visit a re3 recycling centre if you live in the re3 area. Simply show ID and proof of address. Accepted proofs include a photocard driving licence, council tax or bank statement or credit card bill.

If you are a Bracknell Forest resident and have an e+ card the word ‘resident’ should be printed below the picture. You can use this.

Hazardous waste

For information on hazardous waste disposal, such as asbestos and household chemicals go to the hazardous waste section of the re3 website.
